KPFT is a radio station, situated at 90.1 FM. We are one of the five stations that comprise the Pacifica Radio Network.

Nearly 90 percent of our funding comes from individual listener- members. We have no large corporate sponsors. All too often, massive funding arrives with an agenda, not to mention all those commercials! Because of our independence from concentrated control, you can hear the difference between KPFT and any other station in the first 10 or 15 minutes of listening. We are definitely different, and we revel in it.

KPFT has set the standard for what listener-supported community radio can be. We serve the Greater Houston and Galveston population of nearly six million people, reaching almost 150,000 listeners every week and bringing to the airwaves an eclectic schedule of music, news, languages and information programming. In our 40+ year history, we've grown along with Houston, helping to foster cooperation among the various peoples of the community and becoming a unifying force in a city of great economic and cultural contrasts.
