VOLUNTEERING AT KKFI!!
KKFI is a people-powered community radio—all of our radio hosts are volunteers. The station operates with a small paid staff and thus relies on the talents and energies of many volunteers for almost all of our on-air and off-air activities. As a community radio station, KKFI is committed to volunteer participation and works to train community members in the skills of broadcasting and empower you to be the media.
There are a variety of ways you can contribute to the station on-the-air, behind the scenes, or in KKFI governance, but volunteering at KKFI is not a casual activity. Thousands of people tune into KKFI every week and expect our service to be accurate, reliable, and professional. Volunteering at KKFI requires a serious commitment on your part to maintaining the value of our service to the community.
