Our spring 2016 Membership Drive was another success.We worked hard to meet out financial goal and raised just over $15,000. Many thanks for the support from all of our community members as well as the volunteers and programmers here at the station.
We hired 2 summer Youth News Interns, Sienna and Spencer. They are working on documentaries and news segments covering lots of different local topics. You will be able to hear their segments Monday mornings at 830am and as contributions to Kootenay Morning, Wednesdays & Fridays at 8am .
At the recent 35th annual National Campus and Community Radio Conference in Ottawa, 3 KCR volunteers were recogmised for their outstanding contributions to the sector.
