KFMG-LP is a Low Power community radio station, broadcasting to the city of Des Moines, and suburbs, at 98.9 FM with studios and offices donated by and located in Mainframe Studios at 9th and Keo streets in downtown Des Moines, IA. KFMG is owned and operated by The Des Moines Community Radio Foundation, an Iowa not-for-profit corporation, authorized as at 501(c)(3) corporation for tax purposes by the Internal Revenue Service.

Ron Sorenson, former primary owner of KFMG-FM (1992-1996) is the General Manager of KFMG and President of The Des Moines Community Radio Foundation. A Board of Directors consisting of 12 persons from central Iowa sets overall policy and direction.

KFMG operates as "Your Community Voice" and actively assists a broad spectrum of central Iowa non-profit groups and organizations to inform residents about services, programs, projects and opportunities. Our main focus is on the local fine arts and cultural community, with specific emphasis on the local music community, both performers and promoters; and the downtown community. The primary goal of the station is to assist in making central Iowa a better place to live by providing information about the arts, entertainment and culture, and by playing the music we all love. KFMG seeks to enlighten with both music and spoken word. From Public Service Announcements which actually see the light of day, to short-form and long-form discussion programs, KFMG will seek to inform, to illuminate, to educate, and to inspire.
