KXCV was the first full-power public radio service in Missouri. Signing on the air in 1971, KXCV has provided in-depth news and information, classical music and jazz programming. In 1993, KRNW was developed as a satellite repeater station enabling KXCV programming to extend across most of the northern 25 percent of the state of Missouri. All programming emanates from KXCV on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri. Since its inception under the leadership of Station Managers Cathran Cushman and Rollie Stadlman and Northwest President Dr Bob Foster, KXCV has served as a training ground for Northwest students interested in broadcasting. The dual mission of serving listeners and training students remains foremost in the KXCV/KRNW mission. KXCV (XCV - Roman numbers for 95) is located at 90.5 on the FM dial. KRNW (RNW - Radio Northwest) is located at 88.9 on the FM dial. The stations broadcast the mainstays of public radio: Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Prairie Home Companion, Car Talk, and Fresh Air, provided through National Public Radio and Public Radio International. Nineteen local/regional newscasts originate from the KXCV newsroom each weekday along with locally-produced classical music and jazz programming.
