KPOV, Bend’s community radio station, will broadcast live today from the Locals Only Stage at the Bend Fall Festival downtown. The broadcast is part of the station’s fall membership drive.
KPOV live-broadcasts local music festivals to help local bands gain exposure as well as to promote community festivals. KPOV is the only nonprofit radio station originating from Bend and broadcasts throughout Deschutes County and the Prineville area, according to a press release.
The KPOV fall membership drive runs through Oct. 12 with the goal to raise $20,000 in individual and business memberships. Besides the Bend Fall Festival live broadcast, KPOV will air other specials during the drive on 88.9 FM. Membership contributions make up 40 percent of the station’s budget.
