KVNO News is committed to providing in-depth coverage of issues important to our Omaha community, our state and our region. Whether it’s breaking news, ongoing coverage of civic issues or investigative reporting of public entities, the mission of our newsroom is to provide context, perspective and a complete story. Our goal is to accurately inform our community to increase understanding. We also consider it part of our mission to report on underserved communities and bring issues to light that do not receive mainstream coverage. Read More

KVNO News’ Partners

KVNO is a service of the University of Nebraska Omaha, and our newsroom serves as a student lab for aspiring journalists in UNO’s School of Communication, providing a real-life newsroom environment for students to hone their skills, and a medium to broadcast student-produced material. Students who work with KVNO News are expected to adhere to our professional standards of excellence and integrity.

KVNO News also collaborates with local media outlets, including NET News in Lincoln, Nebraska’s NPR Station; The Reader, Omaha’s largest alternative weekly; and Nebraska Watchdog, an independent online media source covering politics and government. It is our mission to create open, free-sharing partnerships, which enhance journalistic resources in order to expand and improve local coverage of issues affecting our community.
