For over 40 years, our team at Ozarks Public Radio has been committed to providing you with in-depth reporting on our community and engaging programming. We hope to grow that engagement with a new campaign entitled Community Driven.

The KSMU audience has always been and will always be a core component of our success. Currently, financial support from our listeners accounts for 63 percent of our funding. That's why it's important for the voice of our audience to be a reflection of our programming, especially our locally-produced content. After all, you put the "public" in Public Radio.

Help inform our coverage!

KSMU's news director and content coordinator, Scott Harvey, is touring our listening area to learn what content drives you, what issues are concerning to you, and what you love about this community.

Let us know if you're interested in having Scott speak to your organization by emailing We look forward to visiting with you and your feedback!

At Missouri State University in April, participants fill out question cards and read those of other respondents from past sessions.
