About Iowa Public Radio

Our History


Iowa Public Radio was created in 2004 by the Iowa Board of Regents to manage the radio groups of Iowa State University, University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa. This statewide public radio network now serves over 200,000 listeners with three programming streams: News, News/Studio One and Classical. IPR’s combined radio group consists of 26 stations that serve rural and urban Iowa, touching all of Iowa’s 99 counties. 

Our history is long and proud: Iowa State University and University of Iowa each have public radio stations that are a century old, with FCC licenses that were among the first 100 radio licenses ever granted. This century of service to and for Iowans is the foundation for our future.

Our Mission
