Kansas Public Radio is the Kansas Association of Broadcasters' Station of the Year for 2018. KPR has won the KAB's top prize a record 17 times since it was first presented in 1996. No other radio or TV station in Kansas has won this coveted award more than us.
Since 1952, Kansas Public Radio has been covering Kansas news and bringing great classical and jazz music to the people of eastern Kansas. Every weekday, KPR provides eight solid hours of news and information to listeners via NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. And on both of these network news magazine, you'll hear Kansas news, including coverage of the Kansas Statehouse. In addition, our weekly public affairs program, KPR Presents (with host Kaye McIntyre), covers a wide range of news events and issues and features lectures, panel discussions and interviews with the people who shape our world.
KPR has been covering state government, full-time, for half a century. No other Kansas-based radio or TV station operates a full-time, year-round Statehouse Bureau. We do. KPR (and formerly KANU FM) has provided a dedicated reporter for the Kansas Statehouse since the 1970s. Our current man in Topeka (and we've had both men and women covering the Statehouse) is Stephen Koranda. He works with our other reporting partners, including the Kansas News Service to report on the Legislature, Supreme Court, governor, etc. Harvest Public Media, which covers agricultural issues and stories affecting the rural Midwest, is another one of our reporting partners.
