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!

On Tuesday, February 24, the Washington County Board of Commissioners votes unanimously to proceed with a plan to close the last two public health clinics in the county and move those services to non-governmental providers. Health and Human Services director Marni Kuyl says the goal of the plan is to expand primary care to uninsured, low-income patients. The plan has proven controversial however, both in content and process, with many members of the medical community as well as advocates for farm laborers and immigrants fighting against the closures. KBOO reported on the opposition to the plan back in September.

A ruling this morning by the Federal Communication Commission to protect net neutrality has been praised as a victory by internet activists.
But although the debate about how best to protect net neutrality may have concluded this morning with the FCC’s new rules to govern the internet, some activists say that the battle may have only just begun.
The House Subcommittee on Commerce and Technology, which is chaired by Oregon Republican Greg Walden, met Wednesday.
At the meeting, Walden conveyed his fears that the designation of the internet as a utility will inspire a wave of litigation challenging that classification . 4:10 minutes (1.9 MB)
