NPR Affiliate Gets Grant To Develop Drones

Columbia, Mo., NPR affiliate KBIA-FM has introduced a “Drone Program” in the hopes of building drones to collect media, the station says. “A lot of people are predicting that drone technology is going to really big when commercial and security applications are available. But why can’t citizens and journalists also use this technology to tell stories and discover more about the world around us?” Scott Pham, KBIA’s content director, says.
