Where the public radio is

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Andrew Filer mapped the reach of public radio stations in the United Stations, based on data from Wikipedia and the station search from the Federal Communications Commission. Each circle represents a station and its coverage, and colors represent media outlets. For example, Capital Public Radio in Northern California is available across several stations in Sacramento, Modesto, Tahoe City, and others.

So now you know where to go the next time you grow tired of the usual Billboard top 20.
