89.5 fm KOPN

What we do:

New Wave exists to provide educational, non-commercial media—KOPN—for and by Columbia citizens that will stimulate the listeners’ awareness of their community and world, and promote a better understanding of their neighbors—next door and across the oceans.

Why we’re great:

For 43 years, KOPN has provided training and access to facilities to thousands of community members of all ages, genders and heritage, who have produced hours of local programming offering diverse musical genres, viewpoints and neutral forums of exchange.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Well-being depends on depth and breadth in knowledge and free exchange of varied view points. Many perspectives provide clearer understanding. Supporting your independent, local, open-access media is essential to assure access to diverse views and forums.
