Last month, we asked you to join us in welcoming two of our newest Boise State Public Radio team members. Sadly, we're asking you to do the opposite this month as we bid farewell to our News Director and former Morning Edition Host, Scott Graf. His last day with the station was Thursday, November 17. 

Scott came to us from WFAE in Charlotte, N.C. in 2012. Since then, he has made his mark in Idaho, both professionally and personally. Though we'll miss working with him, we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor. Before packing up his things, Scott sat down to write this:

Due to maintenance, KBSX is currently running at 60 percent power. This could affect the signal's reach. Our engineers are at work updating our equipment. We appreciate your patience.

One of two Idaho police officers who were shot during a search for a fugitive was released from the hospital over the weekend, while the other remains in critical condition.

The Boise Police Department said in a news release Saturday that a 17-year veteran of the department, who was not identified, is in critical condition at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. He was shot multiple times.

After a divisive political election, about 100 people gathered at the Idaho Statehouse today to try to come together and find common ground.

The Interfaith Alliance held a service with a Rabbi and an LDS minister, along with Unitarian and Episcopalian members.

Judy Cross is the President of the Board of Directors for Interfaith Alliance of Idaho. She organized the event a few weeks before the election.

Today she said the state needs healing, after such a polarizing election.

All of our stations are currently down due to scheduled maintenance we were not made aware of. The work is expected to be done within the hour.

This week, we're bringing you a series of stories on refugees in Boise. The public radio show "The World" sent reporter Jason Margolis to Idaho to learn more about how refugees are making a go of it in the city. The three reports are part of PRI's "Global Nation," a program that tells real-world stories of immigrants in the United States.

Belonging is a fundamental human need. Equally strong is the drive to exclude. This is what Seattle University School of Law professor Sara Rankin calls "the influence of exile," which transcends individuals when powerful groups use laws and policies to restrict marginalized groups. The impulse to exclude is visible today in laws that criminalize and eject visibly poor people, including the homeless, from public spaces.

It's a long story, but here it goes: NPR Digital Services recently announced its transition from Limelight to Triton Digital to host its streaming service. Because both Boise State Public Radio's news and classical streams are hosted via NPR, we've undergone updates regarding our streaming player and URLs.
