See the film billionaires & ballot bandits don't want you to see
with Investigative Reporter Greg Palast LIVE at Clinton Street Theater

Palast and his associates expose the darkest plans of the uber-rich to steal America's democracy in this real-life detective story about the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program - the GOP-backed voter suppression effort that is meant to keep young, black, Hispanic and Asian-American votes from counting in this hotly-contested presidential election.

Greg Palast himself will be at this ONE NIGHT ONLY showing.
This Wednesday, October 26th, at 5pm

KBOO is one of four radio stations to be newly accepted into CPB's 2017 Radio Community Service Grant program. It is our hope that our participation in this program will better enable us to highlight the service our news, public affairs, and music programming provides Portland and our translator communities, while bringing our unique and powerful locally-produced content to a national stage.

We're interested in your thoughts and opinions about CPB!
CATmailKeep an eye on your mailbox!

Members: you will receive a copy of your KBOO year-end mailer, which includes our financials AND our new 3 Year Strategic Plan! Expect it in the first week of November. <3

KBOO is excited to partner with Willamette Week and Grand Central Bowl
for an election party not to be missed! We will be combining this live-remote broadcast with our classic election coverage, which will include The Mood Ring Report, citizen reporter field correspondence, and the KBOO Evening News House band, led by Michael "Shoehorn" Conley.

If you can't make it to the party, or if you prefer to receive election results while hiding under your comforter: we will be broadcasting the whole thing, up until the very end, on 90.7 FM in Portland, 91.9 FM in Hood River, 104.3 FM in Corvallis, and everywhere else online: KBOO.FM

November 8th at Grand Central Bowl - 808 SE Morrison St.
WELCOMEderricWelcome our new AM News and Public Affairs Director: Derric Crooks!

"As a media professional I've witnessed the broad transformation of the ethics and purpose of broadcast since the late 1990's. I've seen the effects of deregulation via the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the rise of monopolies in TV and radio. I've witnessed massive layoffs and a reduction of the voices being heard.

All of this has made me keenly aware of the value and importance of KBOO as a shining example of what radio should be and what media professionals must protect. KBOO is a lone voice in what was once a city of activism and a place that must resist the pull towards globalization and instead tread fearlessly towards localization and community."

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Derric! He starts as the new AM News and Public Affairs Director in early November.
