On Oct. 19, don a spooky costume, because KRCU Public Radio is throwing a “Monster Mash Dash” for their 2nd Annual 5KRCU! 

Participants can run competitively with professional timing provided by the Cape Road Runners, or they can walk for leisure in an effort to raise funds for southeast Missouri’s public radio station. Halloween costumes are encouraged (extra points go to those dressed as NPR hosts!) but not mandatory.

KRCU Public Radio is proud to deliver a new radio edition of the popular podcast The Daily to our listeners. The New York Times and American Public Media collaborated earlier this year to extend the audio news report’s following of 4.5 million monthly unique listeners to a radio audience.


Starting Monday, Sept. 2, The Daily will air weekdays at 6:30 p.m. on your local airwaves at 90.9 and 88.9 FM.

In the August edition of The Frequency, you can read more about a new show, a new season of Live From Here, the 2nd Annual 5KRCU, national host changes, and plenty other happenings at your local NPR station.

Hey NPR nerds! Do you remember The Frequency? We've reimagined it, and we're bringing it back. It will now be the name of your monthly and special edition email updates from your local NPR station. Let us know what you think of the new design by emailing us at
