Minnesota Public Radio

KNSR 88.9 (News and Information)
KSJR 90.1 (Classical Music)

Minnesota Public Radio, founded at Saint John's in 1967 with KSJR (90.1 FM), has grown to be the largest and most successful public radio system in the United States. During the early years of KSJR, Garrison Keillor started to develop the characters of what became "A Prairie Home Companion." Today's 33-station network serves all of Minnesota and parts of five adjacent states with classical music, as well as news and information programming. It has been described by the president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as "the model for public radio . . . clearly the nation's best." KSJR is joined on campus by KNSR (88.9 FM).
