The station is owned by the University of Missouri, and operates its own independent newsroom. The stations hosts Broadcast and Radio students from the Missouri School of Journalism. Its studios are on the fourth floor of Jesse Hall and its transmitter is co-located with KOMU-TV.
In November 2014, KBIA announced it was buying KWWC-FM (90.5) from neighboring Stephens College. When the sale is completed, the classical music format heard weekdays on KBIA was moved to KMUC 90.5, while KBIA transitioned into a news/talk/information station similar to sister stations KCUR Kansas City and KWMU St. Louis.
