With the advent of digital FM radio, KUER has broadened its offerings. KUER-HD2 airs Xponential Radio, a national format from WHYY-FM in Philadelphia, that airs, along with some pop hits, "legacy and indie rock." KUER-HD3 broadcasts classical music from American Public Media's Classical 24.
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.
