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.

Favorable weather, cheaper gas, and busier airports can be expected in Texas for Thanksgiving Day.

The National Weather Service reported only a slight chance of rain for the Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Brownsville areas on Thanksgiving. Mostly sunny skies are expected across the rest of the state.

Thanksgiving Day highs will be in the 60's for most of the state, while the Dallas and Houston areas may remain in the 50s.

Sunrise temperatures on the day after Thanksgiving or Black Friday will range from the 30s in the Panhandle to the 50s across Deep South Texas.

The American Automobile Association-Texas reported the statewide average for gas could fluctuate during Thanksgiving week but was hovering around $2.82 per regular unleaded gallon or about 26 cents less than last year.

Texas had the lowest average price in the nation, while California had the highest at $5.04.

Inside state lines, Tyler had the lowest average price at $2.68, while Bryan-College Station had the highest at $2.99.

AAA Texas also reported 4 million Texans will travel for the holiday — 3.7 million by vehicle, 244,000 by plane, and 84,000 on trains and buses. Travel by air is up 4% this year, compared to 2022.
