A Final Note From NPR Berlin

Sep 29, 2017

As we mark the end of NPR’s operations of the station in Berlin, we’d like to thank our many listeners in the Berlin metropolitan area for your support over the past 10 years. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve this community, and we look forward to continuing to serve Berlin listeners in a new capacity.

On October 16, KCRW Berlin will begin broadcasting on the 104,1 frequency with a new program schedule, which will include some of NPR's signature programs. From now until October 16, you will continue to hear the current NPR program line-up.

On April 1, 2006, NPR launched the NPR Berlin station in Berlin, Germany. It was the first and only radio station that NPR owned and operated. Earlier this year, we announced that NPR was transitioning from the station’s operator to a content licensor, and in September, the Media Authority of Berlin-Brandenburg (MABB) announced that KCRW Berlin had been awarded the 104,1 frequency. You can learn more about KRCW Berlin’s plans for the station in this press release. Contact KRCW Berlin with questions here.

We hope that you will continue to listen throughout the transition and beyond either on KCRW Berlin or on NPR.org or using one of our news apps.
