Jefferson Public Radio
JPR and AIFF have been a natural fit from the beginning. When you want to know what’s happening in the arts in Southern Oregon, you tune in to JPR. When AIFF members and other patrons are asked how they heard about the festival, its lineup of films and special events, they always mention JPR.
Jefferson Public Radio began in 1969 when its flagship station, KSOR, was established on the campus of Southern Oregon University (SOU) in Ashland, Oregon. From a tiny 10-watt station, KSOR evolved to become a regional public radio network serving over one million listeners in Southern Oregon and Northern California.
The network is named after the mythical State of Jefferson, which roughly corresponds to the listening area served by JPR. It’s no wonder that here in the State of Jefferson, JPR & AIFF live happily side by side.
