KUER-FM (90.1 FM) is a public radio station in Salt Lake City, Utah. Owned by the University of Utah, its studios are located in the Eccles Broadcast Center on the University of Utah campus, while its transmitter is located on Farnsworth Peak, after relocating from Mount Vision in the Oquirrh Mountains in 2011.
The station primarily carries National Public Radio programming and other syndicated content distributed by Public Radio International and American Public Media. It is also the producer of RadioWest, a local news discussion program focusing on Utah and the Western United States.
KUER has a 10-watt booster in the town of Alta providing coverage there as the main transmitter is shielded by terrain. It also has a second 1,000 watt booster on Lewis Peak, providing coverage to the Park City area.
KUER debuted on June 5, 1960. Originally, it broadcast at only 250 watts and wasn't heard too far from the U of U campus. It gradually expanded its signal to 35,000 watts. The station was a charter member of NPR and was one of the stations that carried the initial broadcast of All Things Considered.
KUER-FM operates one of the largest translator networks of any NPR station in the country, consisting of 35 low-power repeaters. Of these, translator K202BU Manti is one of the few translators broadcasting in HD, airing the main station's two HD feeds.
