KPOV – High Desert Community Radio
|Welcome to 88.9 KPOV! KPOV broadcasts from Bend, Oregon and reaches listeners throughout Deschutes County and into Crook County. With over 40 locally produced programs and 70 hosts, KPOV is radio by the people and for the people.
Listener Supported and Volunteer Powered!
As a listener-supported, volunteer-powered community radio station, KPOV depends on the generosity of people like you to keep our great programming and service to our community going. We are grateful to everyone who donates during our Spring and Fall pledge drives. And we could use a little boost over the Summer.
Jump on board with our work to build a better community through non-commercial radio. Give us a shot in the arm by donating to KPOV and we will send you one of these cool KPOV Silishot glasses in return. It’s a really adorable 1.5 ounce silicon shotglass, with multiple uses.
Click this button to donate and thank you so much for your support for KPOV!
Thanks to Bend’s own Silipint for the Silishots!
Enrollment is open for KPOV’s summer camps! We are offering several different week-long experiences this summer; three for ages 10-12 and two for ages 12-14.

Youth will learn to DJ, how to conduct and interview, make fake ads, record skits, and generally have fun!

KPOV has a long tradition of bringing our listeners live local music and showcasing the High Desert’s diverse and accomplished musical talent. This summer we will broadcast performances from these bedrock Central Oregon music festivals live on the air!
We also simulcast the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival from Portland live on July 3-6.
If you can’t be there live, listen to KPOV on 88.9 FM or kpov.org. If you are there, visit us!
