Award-Winning

KMUW's news and music staff have won numerous regional and national awards. Reporters feed stories to NPR, and two of our music programs are nationally distributed. We remain committed to excellence and to the mission of providing programming that matters.

 


Connected

Wichita Public Radio hosts several events for listeners each year, such as the Fill Your Mug ice cream social. Members are invited to bring a mug, from a recent pledge drive, and have it filled with gelato or frozen custard. Each drive’s mug features work by a local artist.

 


Dynamic

The dynamic city of Wichita has more to offer than you can imagine. You can enjoy art galleries and concerts year round, 17 festivals and 22 attractions. Wichita State University, home of champion Shocker athletics, has added new buildings and services and is in the beginning stages of a major capital campaign. As part of the campaign, KMUW is looking to expand its cramped quarters.

Wichita has long been known for its high quality of life and low cost of living. But what does that mean? Innovative arts and cultural institutions abound such as the nationally recognized Music Theatre of Wichita, the internationally recognized Tallgrass Film Festival, and 40 museums and galleries within the city limits alone. At the same time, the median price for an existing single family home is only $123,600 and the average commute time is under 19 minutes. Wichita's entrepreneurial culture - ranked 23rd for small business growth among the top 102 metro areas - extends to the staff here at Wichita Public Radio. Combine that with one of the regions busiest airports, our location on one the nation's main transportation corridors, and typical Midwestern friendliness and you have the ingredients for continued robust economic and cultural growth.


In November 2002, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted new rules and policies to a) establish Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs; b) provide vacancy notices to recruitment sources, and; c) undertake additional outreach measures as a part of filling job vacancies.

To document its EEO efforts, KMUW is required to place an annual EEO report in the station’s local public file and post the report to the station’s website, on the station’s broadcast license renewal filing anniversary date, February 1.
