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!

A Houston TV station presented the results of an investigation, on August 1st  showing military recruiters bullying schoolkids and threatening them with prison.

The recruiters lie to the high schoolers, telling them that the 'delayed entry' program is a binding contract.  In fact, the delayed entry program is not a binding contract, but a program supposedly designed to let kids 'try out' the military before deciding for sure.
