KVNO is Omaha’s Classical Radio, and we feature local hosts who live right here and love to talk about the incredible culture we enjoy in the metro area. We work hard to reflect that rich culture in our arts and local news reporting.Learn More
Our main studio is the heartbeat of KVNO.
KVNO’s original office and studio spaces were housed on UNO’s campus in the Storz House, pictured here (1987).

KVNO’s current home is the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) Building on UNO’s Dodge St. Campus.
KVNO’s entryway also serves as our primary music library, storing over 6,000 CDs.
Our Main Production Studio (PROD-1) houses equipment to record, mix, and produce programs.
PROD-1 also doubles as a backup air studio when our main studio if offline for maintenance.
KVNO’s cozy secondary production studio is affectionately called “the Closet.” In here staff can quickly record and produce programs that don’t require extensive mixing.
The Interview Studio is outfitted to record up to four interviews simultaneously.
It’s also connected to our Main Air Studio, useful during morning news broadcasts and pledge drives.

We can’t do what we do without you
“Public” broadcasting has come to represent a different kind of communication service in music, news, information, and entertainment. “Public” also defines how our service is funded. We’re grateful for the community support that accounts for more than half of KVNO’s annual income.
