Edward R. Murrow Award Entry: Overall Excellence 2016


Marfa Public Radio serves a large geographic area, from the border of Mexico to the Permian Basin. Although a small station, in terms of staff and listener population, our coverage area is roughly the size of South Carolina. For parts of Far West Texas, it’s the only region-wide, real-time, daily broadcast media.
