FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
KMUW Announces Changes to its
Wichita, Kansas, May 23, 2011 –
KMUW – Wichita Public Radio 89.1 FM is making changes to its programming
schedule to support its public service mission and to focus production on local
news and music.
The station has reformatted its jazz programming and is proud to announce the
launching of a new jazz show, Night Train, hosted by full-time KMUW
Music Producer Chris Heim. Heim’s world music show, Global Village will
air from 7 to 8 p.m., Host Jedd Beaudoin’s Strange Currency will air
from 8 to 10 p.m. and Night Train will air from 10 p.m. to midnight from
Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, KMUW will offer two hours of Heim’s blues
show, Crossroads, which will repeat on Sundays at 7 p.m.
In August, KMUW will cease carrying Living On Earth on weekend mornings
and Afropop on Saturday nights in order to offer two additional hours of
the BBC World Service each week. These changes will save the station
funding that can then be used to provide more in-depth coverage of local news
and other locally produced extras.
Among its local additions, the station added Wichita writer Andrew Bales’ pop
culture musings, Into It, to its reserve of Morning Edition
bi-weekly commentaries in March. KMUW will soon add a music spot from Mark
Foley, assistant professor at WSU and principal bassist of the Wichita Symphony
Orchestra, to the same slate.
KMUW is a 24/7 news and entertainment station, and is located in Blake Hall on
17th Street, across the street from the main WSU campus.
