KPQX local news brings relevance to issues of importance … news coverage that relates to residents of North Central Montana. Accurate, timely information delivered in a prompt and cohesive manner. Regional and State news are developed through a working relationship with other radio stations throughout the state and region.
National news is supplied by the highest ranked and most respected national news organization in radio today … the ABC Radio Network.
Residents of North Central Montana have long recognized the quality and timeliness of our newscasts. Additional recognition of our News at the national, regional and state level comes from the Associated Press, Society for Professional Journalists, Greater Montana Foundation and the Radio and Television News Director Association’s prestigious Edward R. Murrow award.
Comprehensive coverage of Montana State University-Northern sports programs includes “live” coverage of ballgames in conjunction with daily and weekly special reports like “The Bright Shining Lights” coaches’ interview program. We cover all the action from Football and Volleyball to Lights & Skylights Basketball and the NAIA National Collegiate Wrestling championships to give our listeners immediate, updated information on MSU-Northern sports.
NMB provides also provides expanded local sports coverage daily and throughout the weekend when most sports activities occur. We constantly update listeners in North Central Montana on the results of individual and team sports activities.
Local sports also includes football, basketball, volleyball, track and field, cross country, tennis, golf and softball results for area High Schools, American Legion Baseball, and various city league activities.
ABC provides national sports coverage and up-to-the-minute reports on the progress of professional and college teams and individuals in their quest to be the best in the nation and the world.
Coverage of sporting events throughout the Big Sky Country of Montana is no easy task. Team travel to great distances, communication logistics, scheduling conflicts and the huge amount of sports activities we broadcast require a well staffed, professional sports department that features four play-by-play announcers.
Prompt, accurate, local weather reporting is a monumental commitment to our listeners. We constantly monitor a variety of sources including the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We work diligently to keep our listeners current, with the latest climatic changes, disturbances and threats from adverse weather conditions.
The sheer size of our coverage area crates many challenges to bring accurate, up-to-the-minute weather reports. We have several distinct weather patterns that range in diversity from the Little Rockies and Bea Paw Mountains to the rolling plains north of the Missouri River and south through the Judith Basin. Forecasts are updated immediately and often … several times each hour when necessary!
The responsibility of notifying our listeners when weather threatens a flash flood, tornado warning, severe thunderstorm activity or winter blizzard conditions is serious business. That’s why we were chosen to be the primary relay point for the Emergency Alert System in this area; responsible for keeping our listeners and other broadcast facilities informed of catastrophic and life threatening conditions!
Creating award wining Community Service isn’t easy. It takes an extraordinary commitment to important local concerns, integrity to strive for a balanced presentation of views and creativity to focus the public spotlight on the issues that matter.
Because all radio is not created equal, it takes a talented team to crystallize radio programming that makes a difference. That’s why KPQX has been recognized by their peers and honored with prestigious awards like the National Association of Broadcasters’ Crystal Radio Award for excellence in community service. Only ten radio stations out of more than twelve thousand are chosen for recognition each year.
Public Affairs programs like “Outlook” can be heard every Monday and Friday morning and afternoon. Community Calendar liners that address the instructional or charitable activities of local organizations are aired several times each hour. Public Service campaigns that educate our listeners on issues of importance rotate throughout the day.
Montana’s most listened to farm broadcasters keep our audience updated with the latest information and issues of importance to agricultural producers in our area. Taylor Brown, Russell Nimitz and Kristi Pettis of the Northern Broadcasting System are the Ag Team that farmers and ranchers rely on for timely information and accurate assessment of the industry … more than all other agriculture specialists regardless of media.
We also keep grain producers updated on the latest market conditions with posted county prices each weekday in noon hour programming.
