KCUR has learned that Chiefs Quarterback Alex Smith listens to NPR on his way to practice.

In an interview with sports reporter Graham Bensinger, Smith says that he listens to NPR when he's driving to work out, going to play at Arrowhead Stadium and pretty much everywhere else too. 

Take a look:

If you listen hard enough about 59 seconds in, you can hear KCUR's own Laurie Arbore briefly.

Listen, every day we try to take Kendrick Lamar's advice: Be humble. But sometimes, we just have to make a point to shout about our successes. To Alex Smith: Thanks for listening. We like to think our dulcet tones keep you in good mental shape before you hit the gridiron.

Oh, and keep up the good work! We speak for a lot of Kansas Citians when we say it's a joy to watch our hometown football team beat the Patriots and the Eagles.

Lastly, we will leave this right here: kcur.org/member
