Now more than ever, we need independent media to give voices to those left unheard by corporate outlets!

That is why Eugene PeaceWorks is proud to sponsor KEPW Homegrown Community Radio! We have an FCC construction permit for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to provide diverse locally produced programming in the Eugene and Springfield area. Our engineers have successfully located a suitable tower and now we must raise a minimum of $10,000 to cover transmission equipment, installation and antenna tower leasing costs in order to move from streaming online to simultaneously broadcasting at 97.3 FM by February 2017. To acquire a broadcast license, we must meet this deadline, so it is vital that we raise funds as soon as possible. We are excited to tell you we have raised more than $4000 toward our goal with grants pending for more.  

KEPW.org is already streaming online with locally produced programming that shines the light on swept-under-the-rug issues and brings diverse voices to the air. We are also very proud to carry “Democracy Now” and to bring back David Barsamian’s popular “Alternative Radio,” which was dropped by KLCC after airing for 30 years! KEPW supports our vibrant arts community by showcasing local music talent and is rapidly increasing its news and entertainment programming with more and more producers going on the air from our studio at Growers Market.

We made it! Because of our fabulous community and all their support, KEPW started broadcasting today on 97.3FM. We have overcame numerous obstacles and challenges to get on the air just in time to meet our FCC deadline! Very soon we will be moving our antenna for better coverage but for now our broadcast can be heard in the heart of Eugene. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible! Stay tuned because this is just the beginning!!!
