2017 Winter News and Public Affairs Day

Give to our year-end campaign!


We have an incredible lineup of talks and interviews for News and Public Affairs Day on KBOO - Friday February 10th, 2017.

KBOO is celebrating 49 years of community-produced journalism, public affairs, and breaking news. We've been with you through fascism, neo-liberal Imperialism, and now, idiocracy. We're not going anywhere either. While bi-centennials are good and fine, we wanted to make sure 49 got some love and attention. Thanks to all KBOO members, past, present (and you, future donor listening in: we know you're out there). We appreciate your every contribution, and look forward to bringing you home-grown community radio in the decades to come.
