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.

UConn players celebrate after the NCAA college Final Four championship basketball game against Purdue, Monday, April 8, 2024, in Glendale, Ariz.

The University of Connecticut men's basketball team won the NCAA championship Monday night, becoming the first team since 2007 to repeat as champions.

The Huskies defeated Purdue University 75-60 on Monday night, becoming the first team to win back-to-back championships since the University of Florida in 2006 and 2007, according to the NCAA.

It is the Huskies men's team's sixth championship overall, and they have won every time they made it to the finals, including in 1999, 2004, 2011, 2014 and 2023.

UConn also became just the eighth program in men's college basketball history to win consecutive titles.
