KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

An emergency dispatcher in the Sacramento-area helps deliver a baby

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A Sacramento emergency dispatcher had a thought on Thanksgiving - wouldn't it be cool if I delivered my first baby tonight? And then a call came in the early hours of the morning. Marissa Wittman told CBS the woman said she did not even know she was pregnant. Wittman kept talking with the woman, who was otherwise home alone, and she soon heard a baby's cry on the phone - a healthy boy. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
