Friday (9/29) KNAU in the White Mountains, KNAA 90.7, will reduce power temporarily. This is to protect tower workers as they work on an adjacent cellular antenna. Reception may be poor to non-existent in some areas including service over the repeater on 105.3. Online streaming service will not be affected. With afternoon winds forecast, the crew will likely get an early start and may not require a great deal of time for their work.

KNAU's main phone line is experiencing technical difficulties. Click here to contact members of our team directly.

Phoenix Council Voting On Extra Fees For Airport Rideshares

The Phoenix City Council is mulling a vote to raise fees charged ride-hailing companies to $4 per trip to and from the airport. 

  Council members Wednesday afternoon are to decide on the proposal to increase the current fee from $2.66 per pickup.

That would jump to $4 starting Jan. 1 and be applied to drop-offs as well. The council voted 7-2 Oct. 16 to raise the fees ride-hailing companies pay the city, but the decision was declared void because of a clerical error.

Uber and Lyft have threatened to stop their operations at Sky Harbor International Airport if the increase is approved.
