KSBR's Digital Future

885coveragemap2017_newlogo_3.jpgOver-the-air delivery of KSBR's contemporary jazz and news programming is moving to digital channel 88.5 HD-2.  It will also continue to be heard on line at www.KSBR.org and through many popular apps, such as TuneIn.
This move marks a major expansion of KSBR's coverage.  Jazz programming will be available throughout Orange and Los Angeles counties on 88.5 FM HD-2, through a partnership arrangement with KCSN Northridge.

How to Listen

KSBR's digital broadcast requires an HD-capable receiver, available on many vehicle models, as well as from consumer electronics retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy.  There's more information about HD Radio technology here.  In addition to KSBR jazz on HD-2, we will be adding a channel of Latin Alternative programming on HD-3.
