KVNO Now Broadcasting in High Definition

KVNO Classical 90.7 FM announces the launch of HD Digital Radio. Conversion of the analog signal was made possible through grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Drew Foundation (Jack, Helen, Louis and Jean) and individual KVNO supporters.

HD Digital Radio features CD-quality sound. To hear the digital broadcast, an HD Digital Radio receiver is required.

"We're excited to enhance KVNO's public service using new technology, and listening to classical music in high definition is an incredible experience. The switch from FM to HD has been compared to taking a blanket off the speakers," said Debbi Aliano, KVNO general manager.

For more information about HD Digital Radio, visit the FAQ section on the station's Web site at or call 559.5866.
