While we have your attention…

We’d like to ask you to consider becoming a supporter of Kootenay Co-op Radio.

Over 100 volunteers work hard to produce over 70 hours of original radio programming each week. Without their hard work, this Kootenay institution would not exist. But as great as their efforts are, they don’t pay the bills. 

To make that happen, we need support from people like yourself. And the more financially stable we are, the more attention we can devote to our programming. There is so much more we could be doing, but when you are always worried about running on fumes, it’s a struggle to focus attention on how we can improve our programming.

For just $5.50 per month, you can help us become a media leader for commentary, entertainment, and news in the West Kootenay. Please consider supporting Kootenay Co-op Radio today.
