kHEN’s primary goal is to reflect Salida, Colorado and Chaffee County’s local world community. This will be done using a lower-power, 100-watt independent, noncommercial radio station. kHEN will seek to stimulate, educate and entertain its audiences through programming that is initiated, performed, and disseminated by people living in Chaffee and surrounding counties. Programming sources will also be gathered from national public radio offerings that reflect our local world community ideals. kHEN’s goals for connecting with community include helping to provide a channel for individuals, groups, issues and music that hold interest to our fellow citizens. kHEN will seek out and request community support for its transmissions, on-air studios and offices through memberships and donations as well as volunteers.
kHEN has grown and its obligations have grown as well. Help is needed to meet these obligations so we are asking our friends in our community and our friends everywhere for support. This help can come in many forms. Our listening friends everywhere can help support us by becoming listening members of the station with an annual or semi-annual membership or donation and by volunteering or providing needed work or items for the office and studios. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, donations to kHEN may be tax-deductible. Thank you for your help and support.
