The first Radio Iowa newscast aired on 30 stations at 5:57am on July 1, 1987. Today, Radio Iowa can be heard on more than 60 stations throughout the state.
Todd Kimm and O. Kay Henderson have been with Radio Iowa since the the network was created and Kay became news director in 1994. They -- along with a great line-up of reporters -- have covered natural disasters, the Iowa Caucuses… stories -- large and small -- for the past quarter century.
As we begin our second 25 years, we'd like to thank the hard working men and women at our network affiliates who make our coverage truly statewide in scope.
In coming months we'll share some of the history Radio Iowa. If you have a story to add, please email us.
