KSDB-FM, Kansas State’s student-run radio station, is now an NBC News Radio affiliate, the campus station announced Wednesday.

KSDB will air breaking and long-form coverage from NBC News, KSDB Program Director James Copeland wrote in the K-State Today. Newscasts will also be broadcast at the top of every hour with extended four-minute newscasts weekdays at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

“These upgrades will provide the KSDB news department with 21st century tools to cover breaking news as it happens in today’s fast-paced news cycle,” Copeland wrote.

iHeartMedia partnered with NBC News Radio in July 2016.
