- 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.
