Ways to Connect

Four Murray State University journalism and mass communication students have been selected to participate in the first WKMS investigative reporting fellowship for the spring semester. The fellowship is a partnership between the Murray State department of journalism and mass communications and WKMS. 

Jared Bennett, an investigative reporter with the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting in Louisville, will guide the students through the investigative reporting process and help them produce stories that could air on WKMS and on the WKMS website. 

WKMS is proud to announce another set of awards for its newsroom. The Kentucky Associated Press notified WKMS that its work in 2019 for Murray State’s listener-supported public radio service has taken home many KAPB awards.

Area teachers are going above and beyond finding new ways (and new platforms) for their students to engage from home.

Chad Davidson is a pre-school through 3rd grade music teacher at Lone Oak Elementary. "Missing the students is the hardest part, along with not being able to put an instrument in the hand of every student," said Davidson.

WKMS kicks off 50th anniversary celebrations by hosting an evening with NPR’s Robert Siegel at Wrather Auditorium on Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m., as a free event thanks to Murray State University's Town & Gown. Siegel recently retired after more than 40 years at NPR as a reporter, News Director and host of All Things Considered, heard on WKMS Monday- Friday from 3 – 5:30 p.m. 

Holidays Sound Good 2019

Nov 19, 2019

It's time for another great season of holiday listening on WKMS. Our "Holidays Sound Good" schedule is full of your traditional favorites and a few new programs. Thanks for listening and be sure to tell us what you think about these special programs.

Murray State’s public radio station, WKMS has been selected for an exclusive podcast training program, Project Catapult, through The Public Radio Exchange (PRX) after an extensive application process.  PRX is a nonprofit web-based platform that champions experimentation, risk-taking and stepping outside of creative comfort zones — and they do this through undertakings like Project Catapult, a public media podcast accelerator that launched in 2016.  

We note with sadness the passing of long-time WKMS Classical Music Director and friend, Margaret Mitchell Hunt Arnold, who passed away this week in Asheville, NC. 

WKMS Station Manager Chad Lampe is among three public radio station representatives from across the country selected for a 16-week National Public Radio (NPR) project to develop ideas to advance actionable, real-world solutions to benefit the entire digital network of public radio. Located on the main campus of Murray State University, WKMS provides local and national news, music programming and more to counties in Kentucky, Illinois and Tennessee.

The Public Radio Incubation Lab's mission is to develop ideas that enable NPR and member stations to reach and engage new audiences, create new audience experiences and support public radio's long-term financial sustainability.
