Coast Community Radio plans spring membership drive
March 5, 2020
In what promises to be KMUN’s biggest fundraising campaign for 2020, Coast Community Radio commences its annual spring Pledge Drive on March 11.
As a non-commercial broadcaster, Coast Community Radio operates its three local stations by relying on funds from the community it serves. KMUN at 91.9fm is the flagship station in its 37th year based in Astoria. Its format includes local news, public affairs and an eclectic mix of locally hosted music shows along with programs from NPR and other independent sources. Sister station KTCB 89.5fm carries the KMUN broadcast to listeners in Tillamook, while the third station at 90.9fm broadcasts a separate mix of news and classical music.
“Members make community radio possible,” said Janet Fryberger, KMUN's membership director. “We call it radio of, by and for the people of the Columbia Pacific Region.”
KMUN’s annual spring Pledge Drive continues until noon Friday, March 20. A lineup of special programs and guests can be heard 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., each day of the drive.
Donations can be made by calling the station at 503-325-0010, on-line at CoastRadio.org and dropping by the station during business hours.
Coast Community radio is a member-supported, volunteer-operated radio station, serving a diverse listening audience along the North Oregon and SW Washington coasts, from Raymond, Washington to Pacific City, Oregon.
