What is Community Radio?

ft_halloween04chicken_vert Community radio is a type of radio service that caters to the interests of a certain area, broadcasting material that is popular to local audiences but is, in most cases, overlooked by more powerful broadcast groups.



The kHEN Mission Statement


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.
