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!

Agency calls for
Willamette dam fish passage-
-Kboo's Nathan Jimenez has the story:

A federal agency
says three dams in the Willamette Valley should have fish passage structures if
the stream's Chinook salmon and Steelhead are to avoid extinction.

The National
Marine Fisheries Service released an assessment

Friday of the operation of the 13
dams in the Willamette River

basin.

The Chinook and Steelhead are protected by the Endangered Species Act.

The agency says
the dams and other parts of the basin's flood control project keep them out of
their historic spawning grounds upstream and damage their habitat downstream.
