The Filipino-American National News (FANN) is one of the only Filipino-American radio shows in the U.S. and airs every Sunday night from 9:00 - 9:30 p.m. Central Time on KFAI-Radio, 90.3 FM Minneapolis and 106.7 FM Saint Paul.

Co-hosted by Alan Bungue and Ramon Hough, FANN provides a platform to discuss and hear more about Filipino news, music, community events, and important issues affecting the Filipino community. You can also listen to interviews of Filipino community leaders, artists, activists, athletes, scholars, authors, musicians, etc.

There ought to be a place on the radio for surprises. The Listening Lounge tries to be that delightful, and sometimes disturbing, place. When we air newsy documentaries, you won't hear experts droning on. You'll hear vibrant stories about real people. And when we air shorter audio experiences, we get out of the way and let sound tell the story.
