KSDB is now an NBC News Radio affiliate. We now carry two-minute national newscasts from NBC at the top of every hour. In addition, extended four-minute newscasts are aired at 9 a.m., Noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. in addition to local and state news during weekdays.
KSDB also has access to a satellite feed from NBC for breaking and long-form news coverage, as well as an up-to-the-minute press wire service. These upgrades will provide the KSDB News Department with 21st century tools to cover breaking news as it happens in today’s fast-paced news cycle.
In addition to benefiting listeners across northeast Kansas with extended news coverage, this new network affiliation provides an excellent learning opportunity for the student-staff of KSDB to gain the experience of working with a live network.
NBC News Radio has recently partnered with iHeart Media’s 24/7 News Network, the world’s largest radio-only news source.
