Best Radio News: News 88.7 FM

It's not even close really. When it comes to news reporting on the radio in Houston, the absolute gold standard is Houston Public Media, the team of reporters and on-air news personalities for Houston NPR affiliate KUHF 88.7 FM. It's no wonder they have repeatedly won award after award for their coverage of local, state, regional and national news over the years.

The fact is, News 88.7 FM often covers stories no one else does and with a level of depth rarely heard in the broadcast medium. Their daily Houston Matters show is the most hyper-local news program in Houston news, period. With so few sources for reliable local news, having a resource like News 88.7 FM is a godsend for Houstonians who want to stay informed about their city.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
