WHAT RADIO IS MEANT TO BE
Curry Coast Community Radio is an initiative to create a low power FM community radio station in the community of Brookings-Harbor.
Our mission is to provide a platform in our community for the free exchange of artistic expression, information, and differing points of view, and to encourage cooperation and collaboration among our local government entities, schools, service groups, other non-profits, and especially population segments whose voices are often not heard, such as veterans, the elderly, elementary, middle, and high school students, and indigenous people, to strengthen our sense of community and work toward a better future for all residents of Curry County.
Our programming is diverse, with a common theme of community action, education, and involvement:
- We provide a forum for local government officials and community leaders to dialog with the public through interviews, round-table discussions, and live call-in programs.
- We showcase local arts, music, literary, and drama through the broadcast of locally-produced music, radio drama, poetry and prose readings, and interviews with musicians, artists, and authors.
- We encourage students and other community members to participate in program production and station operation, allowing them to gain valuable verbal, organizational, and technical skills that can be used in other aspects of life.
Curry Coast Community Radio is an Oregon non-profit corporation with federal 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. All donations to Curry Coast Community Radio are tax deductible in accordance with federal and state law.
We were granted an FCC Construction Permit on February 3, 2014, allowing us to proceed with the construction of a low power FM community radio station. We were granted a broadcast license on December 21, 2016 and began broadcasting on January 1, 2017. We’re on the air with the call sign KCIW and broadcast on a frequency of 100.7 FM. Our signal is received throughout the Brookings-Harbor area and as far south as Crescent City.
We depend of contributions from the community for financial support. We’re presently engaged in an active public outreach effort to expand public participation and to raise funds need to put our station on the air.
