Support the launch of KLBP, Long Beach Public Radio

In a city of half a million, you’ll be surprised to find that there’s no radio station dedicated to local issues.

Armed with an FCC permit to build a low-power radio station, we’ve set out to change that!

99.1 KLBP will be the city’s first radio source to provide a platform for local news, in-depth storytelling, music, and civic discourse.

Your contribution today will help offset critical expenses related to meeting KLBP’s on-air deadline set by the FCC.

Second Cause

Education is at the core of our mission. To create an opportunity for people of all backgrounds, we’ve implemented public workshops that guide beginner’s through the planning process, recording and editing. 

First Cause

Our FCC deadline to get KLBP on air by December is fast approaching. All current fundraising initiatives will support launch efforts to secure LBPM’s FCC license to broadcast at 99.1 FM.

Third Cause

Through powerful discourse and impactful stories, we’ll create a platform that keeps our community engaged and informed.

KLBP is a community service of Long Beach Public Media
