Today, the Media Authority of Berlin-Brandenburg (MABB) announced that KCRW Berlin has been awarded the license for the FM frequency at 104,1 MHz, currently known as NPR Berlin. We anticipate KCRW Berlin will begin operating this fall. After the transition, all future decisions regarding on air and online programming will be determined by KCRW Berlin.
As previously announced, NPR is concluding its role as operator of the station and is transitioning to being a content provider. We are licensing NPR programs, including NPR’s signature newsmagazines, to KCRW Berlin.
We will update this post as more information becomes available.
