Owensboro has a new radio station with a 24-hour news format. In addition to some local news, K-News 101.3 was launched by Cromwell Media to provide local residents with national conservative news and talk programming.
The station provides local and Kentucky state news every hour in addition to national and world news from Fox News Network. The station programs some national talk shows including consumer advisor Clark Howard, political commentary by Ben Shapiro, Bill O‘Reilly, Brian Kilmeade and Tom Sullivan.
K-News 101.3 starts its broadcast day with a half-hour of agriculture business news by Jeff Nalley from the local Cromwell Ag Network at 5:30 a.m.
Brian Jackson presents a two-hour local news and talk program daily from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. featuring interviews with community leaders about issues that affect Owensboro.
“We felt that our community was in need of a platform for our local community that brings businesses, people and organizations together and helps to build up our community with local information that is greatly needed,” said Taunya Iverson, Cromwell Media General Manager.
“After 37 years in Owensboro broadcasting I am honored to have a role in this new Cromwell effort to serve the people of this area,” Jackson said. ‘It’s empowering our neighbors to take part in healthy dialog — to listen, to engage and to reach common ground. That’s progress, and that’s what Cromwell Media is all about.”
