Licensed by the University of Kansas since 1952, Kansas Public Radio is a vital and trusted news source for Kansans. The station has won 17 Kansas Association of Broadcasters Station of the Year awards.

Kansas Public Radio is committed to providing coverage of the Kansas Statehouse, and is the only radio station in Kansas that maintains a year-round Statehouse Bureau.
