KXCV/KRNW launching spring membership drive

KXCV/KRNW, Northwest's 100,000-watt FM public radio station will conduct its spring membership drive Saturday, March 28, through Friday, April 3.

Anyone can become a member of KXCV/KRNW by going to the station's Web site at and clicking on the Become a Member button, or by calling 660.562.1163.

Membership opportunities start at $40, and other levels of giving and benefits are available to those who wish to support public radio programming in the KXCV/KRNW listening area.

"Public radio is a true public service and provides a combination of quality news, entertainment and feature programming available from no other source," said KXCV-KRNW General Manager Rodney Harris. "In addition to our many popular national shows, we provide listeners with 19 local and regional newscasts each weekday along with interviews featuring newsmakers and personalities from both the campus and our wider listening community."

Supporting KXCV/KRNW helps keep public radio commercial free and entitles members to gourmet dinners in the J.W. Jones Student Union prior to selected Northwest Encore performing arts series shows. Members also receive discounts for "On the Go with Public Radio" tour packages and a free station window cling.

Listener support helps ensure the future of quality local and national news, music, arts, entertainment and Bearcat athletics programming, including such popular national broadcasts as "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered," "Prairie Home Companion," "Car Talk" and "Fresh Air."

Located at 90.5 (KXCV in Maryville) and 88.9 (repeater station KRNW in Chillicothe) on the FM dial, the station provides streaming audio worldwide via its Web site and to iPhone and iPod Touch users who install the free Public Radio Tuner application on their hand-held devices. In addition, KXCV/KRNW transmits both analog and digital signals so that listeners with new-generation digital receivers can receive CD-quality sound.

Founded in 1971, KXCV/KRNW serves broadcast listeners in northwest and north central Missouri, southwest Iowa, southeast Nebraska and northeast Kansas.
