KMUW celebrates three years of The Range

KMUW is marking its third anniversary of the weekly local news program, The Range. The first episode debuted on Jan. 17, 2020. Since then — and through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic — a new episode has premiered every Friday on the radio, the website and a handful of podcast platforms.

Hosted by Tom Shine, KMUW’s director of news and public affairs, The Range is a program about where we live and the people who live there. The subjects and topics covered are vast. In the past month alone, they’ve heard from local business owners, a dance artist, a third-generation Black doctor, an international student, the founder of Rainbows United, Santa Claus, and a Jewish congregation.

The Range can be heard at 6:50 and 8:50 a.m., 12:50 and 4:50 p.m. every Friday on KMUW, on-demand at, on the KMUW app, or on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.
