Our “New Home on the Range”

The Marfa Public Radio network has moved into our “New Home on the Range” – our new studios at 106 E. San Antonio Street in Marfa.

The move began in November 2014 and was mostly finished by the end of January 2015. Some finishing touches continue. The quick relocation is a result of downtown redevelopment that led to an early end to our lease at our old location on Highland Avenue.

Your continued financial support of this station makes this kind of growth possible. With the new studios, we hope to expand our independent news coverage of Far West Texas, and dig deeper into the issues that effect your daily life.
