Dear Classical IPR listeners,

As many of you know, 88.7 FM has unexpectedly stopped transmitting. We are sorry for the problem which was entirely unexpected at a site we rebuilt just two years ago. Since the transmission failed on the evening of December 16, we have been working hard to get the station back up and running. We identified the issue as a malfunction in our radio tower’s antenna array, which will need to be dismantled and rebuilt by a specialized crew. Unfortunately, snow and ice have made it unsafe for our crew to climb the tower to do this work, despite several attempts.

The 2019-20 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with La Bohème, Puccini’s cherished opera about youth, love, and loss.

The performance, taped earlier this season, stars Ailyn Pérez as the seamstress Mimì and Matthew Polenzani as the smitten poet Rodolfo. Olga Kulchynska sings Musetta, the role of her company debut this season, and David Bizic is Musetta’s on-and-off-again lover Marcello.

Each year thousands of people enter a lottery to hunt elk in northern Michigan, but only 200 people win tags.

To ensure success, most hunters hire a guide. Increasingly, elk guides are breaking hunting laws, so hunters are guaranteed a shot. Some guides are now worried the rule breakers are damaging the sport’s reputation.

At the elk park in Gaylord, guide Preston Casselman watches elk chew cud and relax.

Welcome to a new week on IPR's Kids Commute. This week starts out on Monday, January 20, which is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In his honor, we've put together Civil Rights Week, with history and music that celebrates his legacy.

This week on Points North, we dissect how many elk were poached this winter and why that number has increased. 

Plus, guides are illegally helping hunters bag an elk. What’s next for the guide industry?

Update on WIAA 88.7

Jan 23, 2020

Dear Classical IPR listeners,

As many of you know, we have been working for several weeks to restore WIAA 88.7 FM after it unexpectedly stopped transmitting. 

We identified the cause of the problem as a malfunction on our tower’s antenna array, which will need to be dismantled and rebuilt. Unfortunately, snow and ice have made it unsafe for our crew to climb the tower to do this work, despite several attempts. We now anticipate that winter weather will delay the signal’s repair for a few weeks.
