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!

Florida Gov. Rick Scott tries to keep rising sea at bay by not letting state employees talk about it

program date: 
Thu, 03/19/2015
As south Florida begins to sink below rising sea levels, the Governor Scott administration appears to be building a wall to protect itself from damaging information about the role that climate change is actually having.  His offices in Tallahassee, located somewhat inland, appear to be safe for now from harsh reality. 
Florida appears to be on the dangerous cutting edge of  denialism and the suppression of inconvenient truth. A climate of fear, insecurity and stasis seems to pervade agencies charged with environmental protection and regulation. 18:33 minutes (16.98 MB)
