News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

About a year ago, I met Jackie Malstrom in an Intro to Audio Production class I was teaching. I offered to help her and Paul Rolland to get a Native program rolling and on April 10th this year we will be celebrating the 1st Anniversary of Rose City Native Radio, hosted, produced and engineered by Jackie Malstrom! The show stands on a strong legacy of Native programing and community building at KBOO, but is offering a new perspective, that of Native youth.

On March 18th 2015 I sat with Jackie to ask her to reflect on 1 year of Rose City Native Radio. Check out the Audio bellow or read the Transcipt HERE. 34:29 minutes (31.58 MB)
