The Kansas Association of Broadcasters is a group supporting broadcasters in Kansas, United States, primarily through lobbying and coordination.


The Kansas Association of Broadcasters began in 1951 as the Kansas Association of Radio Broadcasters, when a central Kansas broadcaster sat down to read a letter from Grover C. Cobb, who was vice-president/general manager of KVGB (AM)/FM, in Great Bend.[1]


KAB's mission is to provide professional lobbying and governmental representation, efficient communication and effective recruiting, education and training for Kansas broadcasters, and to promote free over-the-air broadcasting for the purpose of enhancing the success of Kansas broadcasters and helping them better serve the people of Kansas.[2]
