Kanu or KANU may refer to:


KANU is the flagship station of Kansas Public Radio (KPR), a seven-station network based in Lawrence at the University of Kansas. In addition to KANU (91.5 FM), KPR also operates full-power stations KANH in Emporia (at 89.7 FM), KANV in Olsburg (at 91.3 FM, serving Manhattan and Junction City), and KANQ in Chanute (at 90.3 FM); and low-power translators K210CR in Atchison (at 89.9 FM), and K258BT (99.5 FM) and K250AY (97.9 FM) in Manhattan.

Together, the stations cover all of northeastern Kansas, as well as large portions of Missouri, including Kansas City. KPR serves as the main NPR station for the state capital, Topeka, and provides much of the Kansas City area a second choice for NPR programming alongside KCUR.

From the KANU studio in Lawrence, KPR broadcasts mostly classical music, National Public Radio news, jazz, and folk/bluegrass music. KANH, KANV, K210CR and K258BT serve as full repeaters of KANU.

KPR also operates an HD2 signal, which broadcasts a mix of National Public Radio and BBC news-talk programming. That signal is available online or with a special HD Radio. However, KANQ and K250AY broadcast the HD signal on a standard FM frequency.

A subcarrier of all KPR’s signals broadcasts the Kansas Audio-Reader Network for the blind and print handicapped. The studios for both KPR and Audio-Reader are located in KU’s Broadcasting Hall.
