Inaugural Engage Kansas meets to discuss broadband expansion

KMUW's Engage Kansas, in partnership with Kansas Leadership Center and Radio Kansas, convened on April 24, 2023, to discuss the "Internet for All" initiative.

The bipartisan “Internet for All” initiative is bringing $5.7 million to Kansas to expand broadband access. What kind of Kansas do you want to see a decade from now? We discuss how the millions of dollars to build internet infrastructure should be spent. Our panelists for this conversation are:

  • Morgan Barnes, Kansas Department of Commerce
  • Stan Finger, Kansas Leadership Center's The Journal contributor
  • Daniel Friesen, IdeaTek
  • Rolf Potts, Kansas resident and travel writer
  • Gregg Wamsley, Hutchinson Public Library
