Now more than ever is the time to get in the Coop! Why Support KHEN Community Radio?
Here are just a few reasons other than the obvious:
- -Offers an opportunity in partnership with the Denver Symphony bringing us Symphonic Salida and a chance for our youth to learn about broadcasting first-hand.
- -Broadcasts syndicated giants such as Democracy Now!, New Dimensions, The Thomas Jefferson Hour, E Town, Bioneers and more
- -Free from corporate media control, KHEN is able to provide commercial-free programming that features high quality interviews with local businesses, individuals and organizations, and to provide the Upper Ark Valley with emergency news services. Essentially, we are, by the People and for the People.
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.
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. Our fall membership drive will be starting soon. If you are not a member become a member. 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.
