Why Have a Radio News Line?

The goal of the UNO Radio News Line is to provide expert voices (UNO faculty and staff) on topical events important to Nebraska and the Midwest, as well as the nation. As Nebraska's metropolitan university, UNO is uniquely positioned to provide background and perspective on a wide variety of issues. Whether it's international affairs or high technology; hard science or literature; urban planning or environmentalism, UNO has an individual who can provide concise, pertinent information.
