KPTZ 2.0

KPTZ and Fort Worden Public Development Authority (PDA) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding that outlines plans for the station to move its operations to historic Fort Worden.

News of the KPTZ–PDA agreement debuted today (12/04/17) on KPTZ’s news magazine Compass: A tour of KPTZ’s potential future home in the basement of Building 305, thought to be Fort Worden’s first building. The joint press release from the two organizations can be found here.

The prospect of relocating to Fort Worden is exciting because it would place KPTZ amongst Port Townsend's vibrant arts, culture and education community, where we have many natural synergies. The move would greatly expand the station’s ability to inform our audience about the diversity of activities at the Fort, and to broaden our core community.

The agreement highlights KPTZ’s interest in reestablishing its broadcasting studios and administrative offices in the basement of Building 305, the cornerstone facility in Fort Worden’s proposed Makers Square redevelopment project, and relocating the radio station’s transmitter tower to Artillery Hill.Read More
