2017 Winter News and Public Affairs Day

Our Fall drive has ended, but you can still donate online.

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.
