Yellowstone Public Radio On September 30, 2010, a new full-service radio station went on the air, serving Livingston and the Paradise Valley from the Meyers Flat Site. KYPM operates on 90.1 MHz, and operates in the FM+HD RadioTM mode. Yellowstone Public Radio

The difference between a translator and a full-service radio station may seem subtle to most of the audience, but a recent development in the area illustrates this important distinction. For many years, Yellowstone Public Radio was heard on a translator on 106.7 MHz on the east side of Bozeman. In February, 2008, a full-service radio station began operation on 106.9 MHz, effectively wiping out reception of the 106.7 MHz translator. This is an FCC regulatory matter that assigns priorities. A translator is a lower priority than a "full-service" radio station.

In order to secure a place on the radio dial for Yellowstone Public Radio in Livingston and the Paradise Valley, YPR applied for and received a Construction Permit for a new full-service radio station in the Livingston area.
