Volunteers Keep KBOO Connected to Community!


KBOO brings the voices of our communities to the air with live broadcasts from celebrations, events, and cutting-edge lectures. Being able to respond to opportunities to broadcast from around town affords our listeners around the world the chance to be in touch with an exciting event.

Thanks to the generous support of our members, we were able to update our equipment. This has allowed us to vastly increase the number of live on-site broadcasts over the last year. But it takes more than modern, nimble equipment to make an on-site broadcast compelling radio- it takes the considerable skills of caring volunteers who are announcing, producing, and engineering the sound, all working together in a tightly knit team.

KBOO is proud to co-sponsor this annual event, now in it's 27th year.

Each year the Skanner organizes an inspiring presentation honoring the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and highlights the good work of people making a difference in the community.  This event raises scholarship money for local high-school students who are seeking higher education.

Do you want to get to know some wonderfully creative and committed people?  Do you want to learn new skills? Looking for a way to give back to your community?  Volunteer at KBOO!

Did you know that there are about 500 volunteers who participate in KBOO, on and off of the air, to make us the best dang station around? KBOO volunteers make up a very diverse, dynamic, and engaged community. They are the people you hear on the air, and the people who make things work behind the scenes. Volunteers staff outreach tables, write news stories, host on-air programs, fix headphones, set up live music, download and upload programs from and to the internet, and so much more.

Volunteer Spotlight


KBOO is fortunate to have the people power of about 500 volunteers contributing their talents and energies to do just about everything here. There are dozens of roles for volunteers, including investigative news reporting, audio production, spinning fantastic music, engaging in community outreach, greeting people at the front desk, and maintaining the building, to name but a few.

This month, I want to highlight the contributions of Linda Olson-Osterlund, the host and producer of “A Deeper Look”, airing on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 9:30 am.

Join the Volunteer Community


Volunteers work round the clock to bring KBOO to life.  There are about 500 volunteers who add their energy to this great community radio station.  About half of our volunteers contribute to on-air programming, while the rest concentrate their time on the behind the scenes activities that are essential to our existence. 

KBOO's volunteers come from many different communities, each adding their skills and passion to the entire station- making us what we are today!
