Marfa Public Radio Expands Into Odessa

(Community Matters) Last week we learned our (I’m on the MPR board of directors) bid for the Odessa Public Radio station (KOCV) was accepted by trustees of Odessa College. Since they were divesting themselves of the station and mission, we decided our mission to serve West Texas included ensuring the availability of public radio in the Permian Basin. I’m pleased to see the positive responses from our existing listeners and supporters.
