NNN is a headline radio news service dedicated to Native American issues and events that compiles spot news reports from around the country. NNN is the first Native-produced, Native radio newscast that is distributed nationally. National Native News provides the nation with Native news and information linking all listeners, whether Alaskan Yupik or Boston-Irish.

KCCU is also proud to add, Native America Calling, Sundays at 6 p.m.

Native America Calling is a one-hour, live call-in program that links public radio stations, the internet and listeners together into a though-provoking national conversation about issue specific to Native communities. Each program engages noted guests and experts with callers throughout the United States. The program is delayed for broadcast at that time.

Live at the Concertgebouw and Deutsche Welle Festival Concerts have gone out of production. One of the unpublicized reasons is the austerity movement in Europe. When budgets get cut, one of the first things to suffer is the arts, and it is no different across the pond.

We are replacing those programs with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra will air on Sunday Nights at 7 p.m. on 89.3 FM and HD1. The program airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. on HD2.

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra is hosted by Lisa Simeone and produced by Marty Ronish. The weekly, two-hour broadcasts offer a unique format that includes dynamic and innovative content to illustrate the fascinating stories found inside the music, with insights from the performers themselves.
