Coverage of sporting events throughout the Northern Montana is no easy task for Class C schools. Team travel to great distances, communication logistics, scheduling conflicts, and the huge amount of sports activities we broadcast require a well staffed, professional sports department that features four play-by-play announcers.
We constantly monitor a variety of sources, including the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We work diligently to keep our listeners current with the latest climatic changes, disturbances and potential threats from adverse weather conditions—not an easy task, since our coverage area includes several distinct weather patterns that range in diversity from the Little Rockies and Bear Paw Mountains to the rolling plains north of the Missouri River and south through the Judith Basin. The responsibility of notifying our listeners when weather threatens a flash flood, tornado warning, severe thunderstorm activity or winter blizzard is serious business. We keep our listeners informed of potential or catastrophic conditions. Forecasts are updated immediately and often.
It takes an extraordinary commitment to important local concerns, integrity to strive for a balanced presentation of views, and creativity to focus the public spotlight on the issues that matter. All radio is not created equal! It takes a talented team to produce radio programming that makes a difference, and that’s why KRYK has been recognized by our peers for excellence in community service.
