KPOV has received grants from Deschutes Cultural Coalition and Deschutes County to sustain and increase KPOV’s coverage of arts and culture in Deschutes County! We purchased a new production board to increase the quality of production of our local and visiting musicians and artists.
We also received funding from Brooks Resources and an anonymous northwest author.
KPOV also thanks super volunteers Jack Elliot, Joe Katroscik and Paul Arebalo for their amazing engineering work to set up the new board.
