KPOV SENDS OUR GRATITUDE to two great foundations for grants received this summer!
EQUITY FOUNDATION awarded KPOV a grant to produce LGBTQ youth-led radio segments. This project will engage youth in learning how to be a DJ and how to produce a radio show, under the guidance of an experienced adult DJ mentor. Interested youth can get involved by contacting KPOV at firstname.lastname@example.org.
US BANK also extended a grant to KPOV to support our mission as an independent voice serving our community with local affairs and information, a unique selection of great music, and national and global news not offered by any other station in Central Oregon.
KPOV has a long tradition of bringing our listeners live local music and showcasing the High Desert’s diverse and accomplished musical talent. This fall we will broadcast performances from these bedrock Central Oregon music festivals live on the air!
If you can’t be there live, listen to KPOV on 88.9 FM or kpov.org. If you are there, visit us!
