KPFZ Receives Star of Lake County Award

At the 21st Annual Stars of Lake County produced by the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, KPFZ was honored to be awarded the Non-Profit of the Year Star.

KPFZ 2019 Star AwardSince 1998, the Chamber has had the privilege of acknowledging over 1860 individuals, organizations, and businesses throughout Lake County through the Stars program. To date, almost 430 Recipients have been awarded the prestigious ‘Star Award’.  Anyone can nominate an individual or business for an award.

Lake County Community Radio, KPFZ 88.1 FM is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.  We are listener-supported and rely on your contributions to continue broadcasting.  Volunteer-based community radio stations are cultural institutions in their communities, reflecting the unique concerns and passions of the people who live there. With a system of governance based on openness and collaboration, and diverse programming produced by volunteers and funded by listeners, these stations are cornerstones of participatory democracy, offering ordinary citizens the chance to exercise First-Amendment rights in a mass medium and audiences the opportunity to directly support the programming that is of importance to them.  KPFZ is proud to be Lake County's community radio station.

Thank you to all our Programmers, Board Members, volunteers and supporters.  You are what makes KPFZ what it is.  Without you, we would not have received the Star award.

Help Stop the Station Stutter!

You may have noticed that while listening to KPFZ at 88.1 on the FM dial, there are times where the music and talk isn't very clear.  Or perhaps you've tuned in at 5 a.m. and found the station is off the air.  These are 2 of the symptoms of a serious issue facing KPFZ as we enter our 10th year as a full power station.

Help us Stop the Station Stutter by clicking on the above link to donate funds for the STL system.

The problem is complex - the solution requires a large infusion of funds.  The fix is a licensed STL system that needs to be engineered, applied for, and approved through the FCC. Then, the equipment needs to be purchased and installed.  Estimated cost is $20,000 for the equipment, license fee, and setup.
