KPOV’s Fall Membership Drive is coming up October 21-28.
KPOV is a true community radio station. Made up of our community, focused on our community, and supported by our community. As we work to bring you extensive local election coverage this fall, along with our usual thoughtful dialogue and great music, we need your support to keep doing it for years go come.
Please donate to KPOV for our Spring Membership Drive. We offer great thank you gifts and daily drawings.
Be an early bird by pledging by 4:00 pm on October 21 and entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card to Zydeco Restaurant.
KPOV will be interviewing local candidates for office live on the air on 88.9 FM this fall. Interviews of local candidates will be featured on a number of episodes of KPOV’s daily local affairs show, The Point, between September 21 and November 4. Interviews will be posted on our Election Coverage page.
KPOV believes it is important to keep our community as informed as possible about our critical local elections that often get lost in the hoopla around the national elections. Read more for a schedule of interviews confirmed to date. Read more ›
KPOV will be broadcasting local candidate forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Deschutes County in late September and early October. Read more for dates and details or go to to the League’s forum web page.
These forums are another key part of KPOV’s commitment to providing local election coverage you won’t find in other media. You can listen to archives of the forums, as they become available, on our Election Coverage page. Read more ›
