Station Announcements

  • Once again this summer, KFAI will host eight teenage girls for our fifth Youth News Initiative. The program is held June 22nd through August 13th, three days per week from 10am-1pm. The girls learn radio producing skills, job and economic readiness skills and have the opportunity to visit other broadcast organizations around the Twin Cities.

  • Minnesota lawmakers are currently wrestling with how to balance the state’s budget. KFAI understands the enormity of this budget problem, and recognizes that sacrifices will have to be made. However, one proposal calls for the elimination of important operating grant programs for public radio stations. Public broadcasters like KFAI rely on these state grants to serve our communities.

  • KFAI’s signal at 106.7FM is experiencing very low wattage due to damaged parts in the translator.

A return to full power at 106.7FM is expected by late September.
