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.

For the first time, 2 students receive college athletic scholarships for Cornhole

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

For the first time, two students received college athletic scholarships for cornhole, the backyard game where you toss a bag at a board and try to drop it in the hole. Colorado high schoolers Jaxson Remmick and Gavin Hamann have already won a pair of national championships in the American Cornhole League. This fall, both head to South Carolina to play Division One cornhole for Winthrop University. Congratulations.
