KDAK, a new low-power, commercial-free community radio station is now on-the-air at 102.5 FM in Bismarck-Mandan and streaming worldwide at kdakfm.org. KDAK is operated by Dakota Media Access (DMA) and is an open format station, airing an eclectic mix of music and public affairs programming.
“KDAK provides another means for DMA to provide the community access to live, local government meetings,” says DMA Board Chair Jack McDonald. “In addition, KDAK offers training, resources, facilities, and equipment so anyone can produce their own program.”

Already, KDAK has twelve regular programs produced and hosted by local music enthusiasts and organizations which include United Tribes Technical College, NDSU Extension, and Bismarck State College. According to KDAK Advisory Team Chair Shadd Piehl, “We want KDAK to be a refreshing addition of local and contemporary alternative radio programming to Bismarck-Mandan. As local public access radio, we value community input.”

The KDAK Advisory Team is a volunteer group that meets to assist the DMA staff in the review of programming and build the listening audience. KDAK’s Mission is to foster artistry, enhance community dialogue, and distribute the sounds of North Dakota by facilitating and providing cultural, educational and public affairs programming produced and presented by local artists, volunteer producers and partners.
