Nebraska Rural Radio Adds Affiliate

The Nebraska Rural Radio Network just got a little bigger. Radio Station KNCY in Nebraska City is now airing Nebraska Rural Radio ag programming.

"We're excited about this relationship," General Manager Craig Larson said. "It gives us more coverage in the southeast corner of Nebraska, especially early in the morning. We're also able to expand more into Iowa and Missouri."

The flagship of the Nebraska Rural Radio Association is KRVN in Lexington. Sister stations include KNEB in Scottsbluff and KTIC in West Point.

"For almost 65 years, the NRRA has been serving farmers and ranchers and rural Nebraska," Larson said. "By adding an affiliate, it helps us better serve our mission. We hope to add more affiliates in the future."

KNCY in Nebraska City was recently purchased by Flood Broadcasting of Norfolk. Owner Mike Flood says he is proud to partner with Nebraska Rural Radio.

"There's no doubt about it, KRVN and its sister stations are the most relied upon media outlet for agriculture in Nebraska and the Central Plains," Flood said. "Our stations are built around Nebraska's #1 industry -- agriculture and we could not have asked for a better partner to serve southeast Nebraska."

KNCY FM 103.1 began airing NRRA programing this week; KNCY AM 1600 will begin in the next few days.
