News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

The Digital Divide

Fri, 01/09/2015
Breast cancer is the premier biomedical in the world and yet survival has not increased since 2000. The Digital Divide explores what science has discovered about why breast and other cancers are difficult to treat, and why a shift to greater emphasis on early detection and prevention is warranted.  Host Robert Fortner interviewed Bob Eisenman and we'll listen to excerpts from that interview.

Also, statistics in sports might be distorting not only your view of the game, but of science and even lead to misjudgments in everyday life. Statistician Scott Berry brings this unexpected interplay to light.
