The station is owned by Northwest Missouri State University and features programming from American Public Media and National Public Radio.[2] The station is the National Public Radio radio station of Northwest Missouri State University and was the first full-power (100 kW) public radio station in Missouri in 1971.[3]

The station with its repeater KRNW (Radio Northwest) in Chillicothe, Missouri, covers the northwest corner of Missouri as well as sections of Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska.

It is the flagship station of the Bearcat Radio Network which broadcasts the university's football games (as well as men's and women's basketball games).

Other members of the network are KCXL AM & FM (Liberty, Missouri), KKWK-FM (Cameron, Missouri), and KMA in Shenandoah, Iowa.

The station originally broadcast from the top floor of the university's Administration Building. Its facilities were destroyed in a catastrophic fire in the building in 1979. It now broadcasts from Well's Hall which is the remodeled former library of the school.
