VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - The state-owned television network that broadcasts high school activities and statehouse coverage is raising money for a new mobile production truck.

South Dakota Public Broadcasting says it needs to replace its old recreational vehicle that’s a decade old and fitted with outdated standard-definition technology.

A new truck capable of broadcasting in high definition will cost about $733,000.

Friends of SDPB hopes to raise $233,000 of that by summer and then tap its capital improvements budget for the rest.

SDPB says it produced more than 650 hours of programming from remote locations last year.
