KISU-FM to Air NPR's 1A Weekdays at 9:00 am

Oct 5, 2020

On Tuesday, October 6th KISU-FM will be making a significant change to its weekday linup during the 9:00 am hour. The program On Point will be replaced with the NPR program 1A. 


KISU had planned to make the switch from On Point to 1A mid-month, but because of changes to On Point's delivery method KISU was forced to expedite the switch. 

On Point recently anounced a change in distribution from National Public Radio (NPR) to American Public Media (APM), with the switch scheduled for January, 2021. 
Part of On Point's planned changes include eliminating the live hour KISU had traditionally aired. KISU attempted to air On Point on Monday, October 5th using a file delivery method, which ultimately failed due to time zone coding within the audio files. 
KISU regrets the lack of information regarding this change with our audience. Please contact Jamon Anderson, KISU Interim GM, by email with questions, comments, and requests for additional information. andejamo@isu.edu
