Public Radio Day 2021 is on Monday, May 3, 2021: What is the public radio station for Austin Texas?
Monday, May 3, 2021 is Public Radio Day 2021. Public Radio Day! Public Radio Day!
There is a National Public Radio(NPR) station at 90.5 FM(KUT), and also a local co-op(KOOP) station that shares the 91.7 frequency with the University of Texas at Austin radio station(KVRX).
(I highly recomend koop, which is on 91.7 during the day before switching over to KVRX.)
Welcome to Austin!
Where is a good radio station to get weather information and warnings?
NOAA WEATHER RADIO
NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Working with the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Emergency Alert System , NWR is an "All Hazards" radio network, making it your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards – including natural (such as earthquakes or avalanches), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety (such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages).
Known as the "Voice of NOAA's National Weather Service," NWR is provided as a public service by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), part of the Department of Commerce. NWR includes 1000 transmitters, covering all 50 states, adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific Territories. NWR requires a special radio receiver or scanner capable of picking up the signal. Broadcasts are found in the VHF public service band at these seven frequencies (MHz):
There are a lot of Radios that you can purchase that have NWR programed in to them from the manufacturer.
Here are some links as to where you can buy them. it is buyer choice as that the NWS does not endorse any manufacturer.
I personally have a NWR radio that is specifically for the purpose of receiving NWS Advisories, Watches and Warnings I also recommend that if you get a NWR get one with SAME technology.
SAME, or Specific Alert Message Encoding allows you to specify the particular area for which you wish to receive alerts. Most warnings and watches broadcast over NOAA Weather Radio are county-based or independent city-based (parish-based in Louisiana), although in a few areas of the country the alerts are issued for portions of counties. Since most NWR transmitters are broadcasting for a number of counties, SAME receivers will respond only to alerts issued for the area (or areas) you have selected. This minimizes the number of “false alarms” for events which might be a few counties away from where you live. (Public Alert ™ - required)
or you can google search "Where to buy a NOAA Weather Radio"
Any of your news stations are good resources but the first warnings will go out over the NWR
11 and counting! Is this a good day for America?
Yes, it is a Great Day.

They are NOT Providing a Public Service with their Lies, Propaganda, and Mis-Leading Forms of "Journalism."
The Free Press was allowed to be Free, in order for them to be ABLE to Keep Government Honest and to INFORM us, the Public of their Actions.
They were not Granted Unfettered Freedom, in Order to SWAY our Opinions with Falsehoods and to use their Power to Control us.
