KEYA Receives Funding for Tower

keyalogoBELCOURT, ND — Turtle Mountain Chippewa Reservation’s radio station KEYA, is receiving federal funding to replace its 50-year-old broadcast tower.

KEYA Radio will receive $50,000 from the federal government. The new tower will replace the existing broadcast tower that is losing stability and beyond repair.

Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp announced the funding Wednesday.

KEYA radio is a non-commercial, educational broadcast station based in Belcourt. It is operated by the Belcourt School District. It is the only local non-commercial radio station within a 100 mile radius.

The radio station also received $50,000 from a Bremer Grant. It is contributing $90,000 of its own funds to meet the project’s total cost of $190,000.
