Thank you so much to everyone who voted for KPOV in the Best Radio Station in Central Oregon category in the Source Weekly’s 2016 “Best of Central Oregon” readers’ poll. We were 2nd in the polling.
We are inspired by your confidence in KPOV as a great local radio station and pledge to keep bringing you high quality music, local news and affairs, and thoughtful dialogue on issues from local to global.
Community radio by the people and for the people of Central Oregon rocks on!
KPOV is proud to announce that we have received a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust to support an expansion of KPOVs signal and reach throughout Central Oregon in order to connect with new audiences and better serve existing listeners. We are very grateful to the Oregon Cultural Trust for their support for KPOV and for arts and culture throughout the State of Oregon.
