2017 Winter News and Public Affairs Day

Support KBOO in the 2019 Give! Guide and help us reach our goal by Dec. 31st


We have an incredible lineup of talks and interviews for News and Public Affairs Day on KBOO - Friday February 10th, 2017.

KBOO is celebrating 49 years of community-produced journalism, public affairs, and breaking news. We've been with you through fascism, neo-liberal Imperialism, and now, idiocracy. We're not going anywhere either. While bi-centennials are good and fine, we wanted to make sure 49 got some love and attention. Thanks to all KBOO members, past, present (and you, future donor listening in: we know you're out there). We appreciate your every contribution, and look forward to bringing you home-grown community radio in the decades to come.
