The Kanza Society was founded in 1977. The network's flagship station, KANZ (91.1 FM) in Garden City, Kansas, signed on in 1980. Since then, HPPR has added ten other full-power stations in Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Texas, as well as low-powered translators in Kansas and Texas. Most of these areas had never been previously served by an NPR station before.
