Broadcasting Hall KPR

1120 E 11th St. Lawrence, KS 66044

Opened in September 2003, the building houses Kansas Public Radio, a consortium of Kansas public-radio stations of which KANU 91.5-FM is the flagship.

It has five production studios, a music library, and a performance hall seating 50. It was funded by donations from Hortense Oldfather, the Sunderland Foundation and the Endowment Association; von Achen Chartered Architects designed the structure, which adjoins the Baehr Audio-Reader Center.

It supersedes “the Mud Hut,” a small rammed-earth building near Chalmers Hall that had been KPR’s home since it went on-air in September 1952.
