KPTZ Radio Celebration

Your local community radio station is 10 years old! KPTZ is hosting an on-air celebration Thursday, May 13 through Wednesday, May 19. We’re looking back on a decade of achievements and talking about What’s Next for the station. This is a pivotal moment for KPTZ, as we embark now on our relocation to KPTZ’s new studios at Fort Worden’s Makers Square, to be complete later this year.

Thanks to generous donors, including our own KPTZ DJs, who contributed to a pool of matching funds, all new donations during What’s Next week are being matched, essentially doubling each and every donation! Our goal is to raise $50,000 to fund the station’s budgetary needs, stay tuned and we’ll update on progress!

We’ll be asking for your support throughout the week. Please help us continue and expand what we do best—RADIO! Everyone who donates to KPTZ will receive a sticker with our new logo. Also, Pane D’Amore is offering their much appreciated and sought after prize: A Loaf of Bread Every Week for a year! All What’s Next week donors are eligible, online donors will be entered automatically. All listeners can email dj@kptz.org to enter. The winner will be announced on Thursday May 20th.
