It was 16th-century philosopher Francis Bacon who first declared that knowledge is power. And though it's now a cliché, it's still true. No other radio station (and possibly no other media outlet) empowers listeners more than Minnesota Public Radio. With a crack (if pared down) squad of reporters covering local issues professionally and thoroughly, and the indispensable resource of National Public Radio programming, no other station provides better news and entertainment to the Twin Cities. When news breaks, MPR's team relentlessly tracks down the stories and sources on the scene for hourly news updates. Their peerless combination of current-events coverage and interview-centered programs (Kerri Miller's Midmorning, Gary Eichten's Midday), NPR's sterling stable of programs (All Things Considered, Talk of the Nation), and a handful of music shows (such as American Roots) make KNOW the Twin Cities' peerless source for useful information and entertainment.
