Mission Statement

KBCS will provide an independent, non-commercial, listener-supported, volunteer-powered media voice for the community as a public service.

KBCS will air diverse music, cultural and information programming, and offer media training and broadcast opportunity for the next generation of programmers, announcers, writers and producers.

We present information of significant issues facing society, thereby contributing to the development of an informed community both culturally and politically.

We place an emphasis on providing information and creating forums for challenging the cultural and intellectual assumptions of our listeners.

KBCS trains community members in radio skills and independent journalism to foster a widespread critical understanding of the media.

Description

KBCS began broadcasting in February 1973 as a 10 watt, student-run media training center. We increased power to 1,000 watts in the late 1980s and expanded beyond the student body to become a full-time community radio station.

Other milestones followed: we increased power to 8,000 watts in 1990; we installed a new omnidirectional antenna in 2001; and we moved into new studios and offices in Factoria in June, 2002.

In 2006 we moved back to the campus of Bellevue College and we now occupy two houses. Today, the signal is heard as far east as Fall City in the Cascade foothills, as far south as Tacoma, as far west as Poulsbo on the Kitsap Peninsula and as far north as Everett.
