We at KPOV apologize for our weak signal these last few days. We are having some transmission equipment issues.
We have ordered a new transmitter which we will be installing soon. In the meantime, we are working to repair the existing equipment as quickly as possible.
You can still listen to kpov on our live stream on kpov.org.
This Thanksgiving, KPOV will hold true to our long tradition of airing the 2008 Bend concert by Arlo Guthrie. Excited?
We will also feature lots of other special programs, along with some of your usual Thursday favorites. Read more for the full schedule.
KPOV’s newest show, Voices from the Margins, now airs at 1:00 p.m. every Tuesday. Voices from the Margins is an interview-based show that explores non-dominant cultural narratives and issues impacting marginalized populations. A rotating cast of five hosts will highlight stories and communities not typically centered in mainstream media.
Tune in to 88.9 FM or kpov.org.

KPOV was recently awarded an important $7,000 grant from Collins Foundation. KPOV expresses our deep gratitude to Collins Foundation for their generous support of KPOV and for showing confidence KPOV’s ability to meet their high standards.
KPOV was funded by Collins Foundation to support KPOV’s new radio transmitter project. KPOV is working to replace its existing transmitter to ensure reliable service to the Central Oregon community for many years to come.
