Tour of My Favorite Radio Station

Posted on July 7, 2017 by under Things to Do.

Theresa, Tony, and I got a brief tour of KMUW a couple of weeks ago. Here are some pics from that visit.

The station is really neat.

Their huge kitchen is definitely a focal point.

One of my favorite parts of the tour was seeing all of the mugs from various years.

I have a couple of these and the artworks are awesome. Anyway, it’s cool to see all of them from previous years. It made me realize how collectible they really are.

And, of course, every self-respecting radio station needs an award wall.

This is the hallway that leads to the studios.

Our guide did a fantastic job of explaining everything. I kind of wish I that I would have taken notes, or at least posted this blog entry immediately after it happened, because now I can’t remember half the things he told us.

This is one of the studios.

Theresa looking legit.

Here’s Tony.

I’m not sure he’s the best person to put in front of a microphone. Good thing everything was turned off!

Here’s Tony perusing the vast CD collection.

Heather Eden, KMUW announcer and operations manager.

Jonathan Huber, host of Morning Edition. I listen to this guy a lot.

The best features of their conference rooms are the conference tables which are made of old bowling lanes. They salvaged the floors from Thunderbird when it closed. It’s pretty amazing.

If you’ve never been to the KMUW office in Old Town, I highly recommend it. Go when you have a few minutes to spare and ask for a tour because they’ll be happy to do it. I’m sure everyone is so happy with that new digs (not so new anymore) that they’re happy to show it off. The new office is definitely much nicer than their old space on 17th Street across from the Wichita State University campus.

What are you waiting for? Head on over there!
