DURANGO, Colo. (AP) — A radio station that broadcasts one of the nation's only radio programs dedicated to traditional Native American music is expanding coverage to northwest New Mexico.
Southern Ute listeners as far away as Shiprock, N.M., and Bloomfield now will be able to tune into KSUT-FM thanks to a federal grant.
According to the Durango Herald (http://tinyurl.com/aatrj5n ), the station will broadcast at 89.7 FM with a mix of local and national programs such as Native America Calling and National Native News.
The station currently broadcasts to as many as 1,000 listeners between Archuleta and Montezuma counties in Colorado.
With the new signal, station officials estimate the station could reach 30,000 additional listeners, including many members of the Navajo Nation.
