KSMQ sets its sights on Rochester with its newest weekly program, “R-Town.” As one of the economic engines of the KSMQ viewing area, Rochester is brimming with business, cultural and historical significance. And of course there is also great change proposed as a result of the Destination Medical Center project. What is Rochester talking about? Join Nicole Nfonoyim-Hara and Eric Olson each week as we take a trip to “R-Town.”
