KDCR, 88.5 FM, is the radio station of Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa. It began broadcasting August 16, 1968. It governed by the Dordt University Board of Trustees. However, it is not owned by Dordt University, Inc. Since the Board of Trustees includes people from various locations, including a number of people who are of Canadian citizenship, and since the U.S. Federal Communications Commission prohibits foreign ownership of American radio stations, the station cannot legally be owned by the university, and is a legal entity unto itself.
KDCR broadcasts only Christian oriented programming. In 1968, KDCR began broadcasting at 48,000 watts and to a radius of 50–60 miles. Today the station broadcasts at 100,000 watts and to a radius of 80–90 miles. KDCR also operates translator stations—retransmitting KDCR's signal even further in specific areas. Originally KDCR broadcast at 91.3 FM but since 1981 it has broadcast at 88.5 FM.
KDCR follows closely the Christian Reformed Church in North America tradition that gave rise and shape to Dordt University.
