Boise State Public Radio Receives $1.1M Donation, Creates Endowment For Local News

Boise State Public Radio


In recent years, local news across the country has often struggled. “News deserts” have begun springing up in places around the Mountain West as folks have fewer sources. Newspapers, TV and radio stations have shrunk or closed in many communities and folks have lost vital sources of information to help them make informed decisions in their lives. 

But there are some news organizations that have been able to grow during a critical time in our nation’s history, including Boise State Public Radio.


Joining Idaho Matters to talk about two exciting developments in our station’s news future is General Manager Tom Michael.
