Your Voice Matters with New KUAF Connects Feature on Upgraded App for iPhone

Jul 13, 2021

KUAF has released a newly upgraded app for iPhone and iPad! Now you can listen live to KUAF's three digital streams, access full episodes of Ozarks at Large, set alarms to wake up to KUAF and you can send your messages and feedback directly to the station in the new KUAF Connects feature. This new feature allows listeners to share their voices and experiences with everyone in the KUAF listening area.  

In March 2020, KUAF developed a phone line for listener responses called KUAF Connects. In the 18 months since, KUAF has received and aired dozens of messages from listeners across the 14-county listening area, on topics ranging from how they spent their time during the early days of the pandemic to memories of becoming a KUAF or NPR listener.

Following leaders in public radio programs like 1A and Science Friday, the KUAF Connects feature allows listeners to respond directly to a number of questions and prompts directly through the app. Listeners' answers are recorded and sent directly to the station, where they can be edited and aired or possibly, could be extended into longer, more in-depth stories. 

The KUAF app is available for download in the App Store for iPhone and iOS only at this time.
