KVPR Celebrates California Public Radio Day On August 26
KVPR is proud to participate in California Public Radio Day, a single day celebration aimed at creating awareness for the vital public service public radio stations bring to communities across the state. After a successful inaugural year, 30 stations from across California are coming together to commemorate the day on August 26.
This past year has underlined the importance of access to trustworthy public media for everyone in our communities. In the midst of unprecedented challenges, public radio stations across the state stand together united in what connects us. Whether it’s the importance of information, or the power of music, collectively we believe in public radio’s ability to uplift voices of the community, and to entertain, educate, inform, and inspire – and so do our listeners.
From timely and localized reporting on fires to shining a light on our communities, public radio is essential. But without the financial support of our listeners, we are at great risk of faltering on this mission. On August 26, KVPR joins stations from across the state, from San Diego to Arcata, to collectively encourage listeners to support their local stations.
Particpating public radio stations include: 88.5 FM (Northridge), Cap Radio (Sacramento), DubLab (Los Angeles), KALW (San Francisco), KAZU (Monterey Bay), KCBX (San Luis Obispo), KCHO North State Public Radio (Chico), KCLU (Santa Barbara), KCRW (Santa Monica), KDFC (San Francisco), KDVS (UC Davis), KFCF (Fresno), KISL (Avalon), KJCC (San Jose City College), KKJZ (Long Beach), KMUD (Redway), KPBS (San Diego), KPCC (Pasadena), KPFA (Berkeley), KPFK (Los Angeles), KQED (San Francisco), KRCB (Santa Rosa), KUSC (Los Angeles), KVCR (San Bernardino), KVPR (Fresno), KXLU (Loyola Marymount University), KX FM (Laguna Beach), KZSC (Santa Cruz), KZYX (Mendocino), UCLA Radio (UCLA).
