Inside Iowa


Inside Iowa is our weekly, FCC regulated, community service program that runs on all five radio stations here at Cumulus Des Moines.  Which is by no means as boring as that sounds.  The show has been on for years with guests that include great organizations, big events, fundraisers, social topics, politics and people doing good and helping each other in many ways across the state.

Plus we have fun.

Inside Iowa runs on Nash FM 97.3 at 5:30am on Saturday mornings.  So far this year some of our guests include:


 The Des Moines Playhouse

–  Prevent Child Abuse Iowa

The Winterset Stage

….and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  If you have an idea please send me an email with some details on what you had in mind and we’ll talk.
