At 2:00pm on Wednesday, March 30, that source expands to the FM side of the dial as Kansas Citys radio news leader becomes NewsRadio 980 and Now 98.1 FM KMBZ.  This is a very exciting time for KMBZ and the Kansas City community!" says KMBZ Program Director, Neil Larrimore. KMBZ is Kansas Citys leader when it comes to news, information and critical thought, and this move offers the information-hungry Kansas City market one more way to connect with KMBZ in addition to the AM signal, and our comprehensive online, text and social media news product. It completes the picture. Its a bigger, better KMBZ.
