KIOS-FM, Omaha's NPR-Station, is Omaha Public Radio and since its beginnings in 1969, the mission has been simple: to provide to the audience programming that cannot be found on commercial radio and serve as the educational extension of the Omaha Public Schools.
As the education extension of the Omaha Public Schools, KIOS-FM facilities are used as the lab of radio broadcasting students of the OPS Career Center. Their work can be heard several times a week in programs designed and produced by the students.
On the programming side, KIOS-FM brings the best in programming from National Public Radio, American Public Media, Public Radio International and locally produced shows. These programs represent the best in News, Information, Jazz and entertainment. They inform and entertain.
That is our mission!
We play many hours of best Jazz - every day and every night!
