Ampers

GroupAccount image

Ampers is an association of 18 independent community radio stations in Minnesota.  Each station is locally managed and programmed by and for the local communities they serve.  Ampers is the largest network of community radio stations in the state of Minnesota and one of the largest of its kind in the United States. From Grand Marais, and Thief River Falls, to Mankato and Winona, and just about everywhere in between, we’ve got Minnesota covered. Our combined audience is about 250,000 devoted listeners.  Ampers has no affiliation with Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) and receives no financial support from MPR.
