In an exciting new partnership, Podcast Radio, the innovative spoken word format, is collaborating with Alpha Media to bring a unique radio experience to Missouri.

Podcast Radio Missouri will launch on KREI-AM (Farmington) on May 27th and KWIX AM/FM (Moberly) on June 17th.

Podcast Radio Missouri will be featured across dayparts on the two stations, prominently acting as the Morning Show in both markets, offering a fresh and dynamic start to the day. This partnership marks a significant expansion of Podcast Radio’s format into the American radio landscape, promising to offer Missouri listeners a novel way to explore podcasting content through traditional radio.

Listeners will hear top-quality podcast content from across North America and the world, while also giving airtime to local Missouri podcast content. Localized imaging and station IDs will feature across Podcast Radio Missouri broadcast hours, which also include original interviews with podcasters. Gene ‘Bean’ Baxter acts as lead interviewer, delving deep into the methodology and personality of both local and national podcasts and their creators.

Gerry Edwards, CEO of Podcast Radio, notes, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Alpha. The team has been great to work with in the build-up to launch, and we cannot wait to hear more Missouri-based podcasters on these stations.”

Phil Becker, Executive Vice President of Content at Alpha, said, “We’re excited to partner with Podcast Radio to bring this innovative format to our listeners in Missouri. This partnership underscores our commitment to delivering fresh, engaging content that resonates with our communities. While we are launching on one station in two Missouri markets, our goal is to expand the format to our other two Missouri markets”.
