About The Bridge

In 2013, Kansas City PBS acquired the Triple-A (adult album alternative) radio station broadcasting out of Warrensburg, Missouri. While KTBG 90.9 moved down the road the 60-some miles from Warrensburg to Kansas City, the station’s passion for local music, community, and independent voices has remained the same.

In fact, with the power of KCPT behind it, The Bridge has strengthened its commitment to weaving new, rare, and local music into all of our playlists, right alongside familiar hits and classics you know and love. The Bridge connects music lovers with music makers through performances and interviews. As KTBG 90.9, we’re out in the community, supporting the musicians, the venues, the listeners.

Our website brings you local industry voices, breaking music news and national music news. No other station does what we do. And nobody else in town plays as much local music as The Bridge. Period.

Our city is a true original. And so is The Bridge.
