KPR Earns KAB's Station of the Year Award for Record 20th Time

LAWRENCE, Kan (KPR) - Kansas Public Radio, based at the University of Kansas, has earned the Station of the Year award for a record 20th time from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters (KAB). The KAB announced the award August 3. The Station of the Year title was first presented in 1996. KPR won the prize that first year and has since earned the KAB's highest honor 20 times, more than any other radio or TV station in the state.

Listener Support Needed Now More Than Ever!

YOUR support is now more important than ever. This spring, the University of Kansas cut KPR's budget by $216,571 as they braced for financial setbacks from the pandemic. This is in addition to a number of others cuts over the years, totaling $521,571 less annual support from the university since budget reductions began in FY15. That is why we come to you, our loyal listeners, for the support we need to keep this station running strong, because your contributions, along with underwriting, now make up more than 84% of our annual budget.

Step Into Spring by Supporting KPR!

For the love of KPR - that's why we're here this spring asking for YOUR support. Kansas Public Radio relies on a connection with you as much as you rely on KPR. The news and music you hear every day informs, enriches and improves your life and that of more than 100,000 other listeners in our community. Not only can you hear an unsurpassed variety of classical, jazz, space age pop and bluegrass, but KPR also connects you with live virtual concerts and unique events.
