In the age of ultra-information, community radio remains a powerful way for people to connect, learn, and discuss issues important to their lives. KGNU has provided informative and entertaining programming to listeners on Colorado’s Front Range for more than 42 years – programming that digs deep into social and political issues showcases independent voices and celebrates our community’s unique culture.
With very challenging times clearly still ahead of us, there’s never been a more impactful time for you to support KGNU and the authentic power of independent eclectic music and in-depth news and public affairs programs.
Our goal to raise critical operating funds that will allow us to continue to bring you community radio – radio created and cultivated by your community. Whether you’re a news junkie, analysis geek, or world music devotee, you can discover the power of community radio by tuning in and making a donation
