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.
