Don't hate the media. Be the media!
KBOO is YOUR community radio station, and you can participate!
What can I do in the news department?

Listen to the KBOO Evening News on YOUR time.
The media landscape is changing. More and more people are getting their news and entertainment "on demand." KBOO is recruiting folks for our Evening News Web Team. Our purpose is to make sure that the KBOO Evening News along with locally produced segments are uploaded to this website within an hour after our 5 p.m. live radio broadcast. You do not need to have any web specific technical skills to join. We will train you. If you know how to update a Facebook page, then this will be an easy responsibility for you. This is the future of KBOO programming and a great opportunity for you to be part of it. We need folks who are available and willing to make a 2 hour weekly commitment to come into the station from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on any given weeknight.
If you are this person, then contact our volunteer Web Team Coordinator - Todd Altstadt, who can be reached at todd.michael.altstadt [at] gmail.com. Let Todd know what night you can come in and contribute to the future of KBOO Community Radio.
