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!

We'll also drop in on Portland Youth Builders, an alternative program specifically designed to meet the needs of low-income students who have dropped out of high school. And we'll hear from Anna Fritz, who was a straight-A student when was inspired by the unschooling movement and decided to leave school at age 16.
