We are excited to announce that KPOV has a new antenna and a much stronger signal than we have had since our old antenna was struck by lightning last spring. We still have one more step to get back to full power, which will occur soon.
We are getting reports of very good reception. Check your signal if you have not tuned in to 88.9 FM recently, and let us know what you think. Remind your friends to tune in as well.
Thank you for being a KPOV listener!
KPOV’s Fall Membership Drive is happening now – October 21-28!
KPOV is a true community radio station. Made up of our community, focused on our community, and supported by our community. As we bring you extensive local election coverage this fall, along with our usual thoughtful dialogue and great music, we need your support to keep doing it for years go come.
KPOV’s membership drive is not just about KPOV’s wonderful and inspiring new and renewed members. This fall, we also have all kinds of special programs. New shows Sasquatch Salon (Monday at 2) and Northwest Taproom (Friday at 2) will premiere. We will be rebroadcasting local election forums and doing live and rebroadcasted local candidate interviews. Read on for a detailed run-down. Read more ›
KPOV will be interviewing local candidates for office live on the air on 88.9 FM this fall. Interviews of local candidates will be featured on a number of episodes of KPOV’s daily local affairs show, The Point, between now and November 4. Interviews will be posted on our Election Coverage page.
KPOV believes it is important to keep our community as informed as possible about our critical local elections that often get lost in the hoopla around the national elections. Read more for a schedule of interviews confirmed to date and rebroadcasts coming up during our membership drive! Read more ›
KPOV will be broadcasting local candidate forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Deschutes County in late September and early October. Read more for dates and details (or go to to the League’s forum web page) and for our rebroadcast schedule.
These forums are another key part of KPOV’s commitment to providing local election coverage you won’t find in other media. You can listen to archives of the forums, as they become available, on our Election Coverage page. Read more ›
