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!

program date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014
In July, 2013, the forest watchdog group Bark filed a lawsuit challenging the Forest Service on the Jazz Timber Sale in the Clackamas Ranger District.
Bark’s lawsuit alleges that the forest Service did not comply with the National Environmental Policy Act and the national Forest Management Act in its decision to log this geologically unstable watershed.
Despite active litigation, the Forest Service proceeded with entering into contracts with the Canadian timber giant Interfor to log parts of the sale.
Just last month, Federal District Judge Marco Hernandez dismissed Bark’s factual and legal challenges, deferring to the Forest Service’s claims that the sale is legal and allowing logging to continue. 5:30 minutes (5.03 MB)
