KFMG Is The Little Station That Could

Choo-choo! For the second consecutive year, Community LPFM Triple A KFMG/DES MOINES was chosen by readers of Cityview, DES MOINES’ weekly entertainment/alternative newspaper as Des Moines’ Best Radio Station.
Station GM/PD RON SORENSON said, "This is a pretty significant accomplishment for a station with all of the power of a large light bulb (100 watts), a marketing and promotion budget of $0, and a total annual budget which is probably less than the cost of most morning shows in the market."
Here’s what Cityview had to say about KFMG: "Repeat winner KFMG is a low-power community radio station broadcasting to the city of DES MOINES and suburbs with tower, transmitter space, studios and offices donated by and located in the HOTEL FORT DES MOINES. KFMG operates as 'Your Community Voice,' and its primary goal is to help make central IOWA a better place to live by providing information about arts, entertainment and culture, and by playing the music Iowans love. Our readers say they do it well."
Further, KFMG mid-day host JILLIAN SONKSEN was second place in the Best Radio Voice That Turns You On category, and SORENSON was third place in the Best Radio Personality category.
