New 'Backroads of Montana' features story on Fort Belknap radio station

 


The popular MontanaPBS travelogue program, Backroads of Montana, will feature a segment on KGVA at Fort Belknap, the only tribal radio station in Montana.

The new episode set to premiere on Sunday, Nov. 21, 7 at p.m. on MontanaPBS.

KGVA (the "GV" is for Gros Ventre, the "A" for Assiniboine) serves the Fort Belknap reservation and a large portion of Montana's hi-line.

A once-struggling NPR affiliate with mostly national programming, the station was reprogrammed as a communications link for the wide-spread tribal community. It now broadcasts tribal council meetings, American Indian musicians – and basketball games.

Backroads of Montana is a production of KUFM-TV / MontanaPBS at the University of Montana. MontanaPBS is a collaborative statewide service of KUSM-TV at Montana State University, Bozeman and KUFM-TV at the University of Montana. Funding for Backroads of Montana is provided by the Montana Office of Tourism, the Greater Montana Foundation, and the University of Montana.
