Out Loud is retiring - but Queer programming continues on KBOO
KBOO is proud of our long-time support of programming serving and featuring the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning communities. A handful of LGBTQ focused shows have aired over the years, including Queer Queer World, Gender Blender, The Other Team and most recently Out Loud, which began airing in April 2002.
Out Loud was created by a collective of volunteers and has been created by many volunteers over the 13 years it has been on KBOO. Out Loud is retiring in June, and while we prepare to say good bye to Out Loud, we welcome the opportunity for new programs to continue airing in Out Loud's time slot, which is every Tuesday from 6pm - 7 pm, after KBOO's evening news and before Hard Knock Radio.
KBOO welcomes new show proposals serving and focusing on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning communities. Individuals (or small groups of people) are encouraged to submit a proposal for a new queer/LGBTQ program by June 9th. The Program Proposal form can be found on the KBOO website at: http://kboo.fm/volunteer/program-app
To meet KBOO's mission and strategic plan, people from under-represented groups are encouraged to submit proposals. Program proposals need to fit the current format of the News and Public Affairs time frame (ie. not a music show).
The new program proposals will be considered by the Programming Committee on June 9th, 2015. Out Loud's last show will also be June 9th, and pilots of new shows will air during June, with the final decision on the new schedule of shows to be made by Program staff in July.
Thanks to everyone who has supported queer programming on KBOO through the years - and we look forward to new and exciting developments in this area in the months and years to come. Stay tuned!
Out Loud is KBOO's queer culture radio show, celebrating & serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning & allied communities. We feature interviews with community groups, authors, musical talent, and anyone from the queer & allied communities. We strive to give voice to those not heard in the main stream media.
Out Loud is a community created radio show and everyone involved is a volunteer. Please consider joining us! Email us if you have any questions, or even if you just want to say 'Hi!'
