K Southern Ute Tribe) is a non-commercial, public radio station located at 91.3 FM in Ignacio, Colorado. They first went on the air in 1976 with 10 watts and programming to serve the Southern Ute Indian Reservation including Ute language and cultural shows and Native American music. After a signal strength increase in the mid-1980s, KSUT evolved into a more traditional public radio station, joining NPR and becoming known as Four Corners Public Radio (the 4 corners being the geographic point where Utah, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona meet.) In the late 1990s they split their program stream so that 4CPR continued to serve the larger regional audience while "Southern Ute Tribal Radio" went back to serving the local Native American population.
