Radio Station Format Definition: Public Radio
These stations depend primarily on funding from the listening public
(hence the name). They are generally commercial free and the
programming is often art and education oriented with special talk and
music segments that get little or no attention on commercial
radio. Jazz, blues, and classical music are popular. Most public radio
stations incorporate programming from networks such as National Public
Radio (NPR). Commonly, public radio is also associated with a local
higher educational institution.
