KPOV is proud to announce our volunteers of the year for 2016. With over 100 volunteers at KPOV, it is quite an accomplishment to become Volunteer of the Year.
The winners this year are Carolyn Clontz and Joe One Drum. Carolyn hosts the Monday Point and sets up our programming each Thursday and every other Friday morning, a critical task for KPOV.
Joe has been volunteering with KPOV since before we went on the air. He was instrumental in building out the studio and provides all manner of mechanical and technical assistance at the station and for our live remote broadcasts.
KPOV wants you to talk about it! The issues and events important to Central Oregon that is.
If you want to be talk show host on KPOV’s “The Point” and other KPOV talk shows current and future, we have a great four session class to teach you all the skills. The KPOV DJ class is a prerequisite and the next one is April 8. Learn more about the DJ class here. Want info or to sign up? Contact Bruce at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-322-0863.

Join KPOV for one of the funniest evenings this year in Central Oregon.
KPOV is bringing truly hilarious singer-songwriter and political satirist Roy Zimmerman to the Volcanic Theater Pub in Bend on June 7, 2017.
The world is full of funny songs, but Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable.
Read on for more about Zimmerman and why you can’t miss this show. Also check out our sponsors so far and how you can become one! Read more ›
