History:
This station most likely came on in 1983 as the northeast Mississippi affiliate of Public Radio in Mississippi.  In 2005 the radio and educational television divisions were rebranded as Mississippi Public Broadcasting. The network garnered some notoriety in the summer of 2010 when it abruptly dropped the Fresh Air program after comic Louis CK talked openly about sex.  It quietly re-added the program after the furor died down.  In July 2013 the station relegated all music programming to the HD-2 subchannel, leaving all news and talk on the mainanalog/HD-1 channel.
