Kansas Public Radio

Kansas Public Radio is one “station” with several towers and listeners across a wide swath of northeast, north-central, and southeast Kansas; the Kansas City metro area; and northwest Missouri.

Besides providing outstanding regional news coverage, KPR carries programs from National Public Radio — including All Things Considered, Car Talk, and This American Life. Listeners can also hear a diverse selection of music played throughout the day, from bluegrass and Bach to Broadway show tunes.

Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
