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!

An Oregon paper mill which was sold off in bankruptcy proceedings last month will re-hire half the workers that were fired – but without a Union contract. <?xml:namespace prefix = o>

When Pope and Talbot paper mill in Halsey went bankrupt last month, 180 workers lost their jobs.

Now, at least ninety of those workers will be re-hired by the company that bought the assets from the bankruptcy court.

The mill's new owners, Minnesota-based Wayzata Investment Partners, has not yet recognized the two unions that had existing labor contracts when the mill was closed.
