How is Ozarks Public Radio a Part of Your Life?

We're honored to serve the Ozarks' region through a collection of local news and music and national programming. As we build upon our more than 40 years of thoughtful reporting and engaging content, we welcome the chance to learn about and share your listening experiences with the masses!

Through the years, we've periodically heard the voices of some listeners about why they tune in to KSMU. Now, we hope to grow that feedback, and better understand your "listening environment." We'll be periodically adding testimonials to this page, which you can read and listen to below.

Do you listen in the car, while making dinner, or at work? Is your radio on in the morning, afternoon, or on the weekends? Tell us how Ozarks Public Radio is a part of your life and why you're #TeamKSMU!

Email so we can tell your story.

Longtime KSMU supporter Sue Phillips is almost always listening. When outside working in her backyard, she takes a battery-powered radio that her brother gave her years ago.

"It has really good fidelity and gets KSMU perfectly," she says with a grin.

Sue keeps the radio in a plastic bag so it doesn't get dirty.
