KANW (89.1 MHz) is a radio station based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Launched in 1951, it is the oldest FM radio station in New Mexico. KANW is a public radio station run by the Albuquerque Public Schools. For most of the day it airs New Mexico music and local public radio programming, with some NPR news programming.

KANW is also broadcast on KNLK 91.9 in Santa Rosa and on KIDS 88.1 in Grants, New Mexico. There is also an HD Radio format broadcast of KANW 89.1 FM .[1]

KANW will acquire two more stations from Educational Media Foundation. These are KDRI 90.3 in Grants and KGGA 88.1 in Gallup, New Mexico. Both stations are former Air 1 outlets.[2] KDRI will give KANW two stations in the Grants area as KIDS already serves as a satellite of KANW so KDRI could likely air the news and talk format which currently airs on a translator in the area.
