Independent Media Must Stay Strong!

 

Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

UPDATE: On Sept. 14, 2015, “a federal court…ordered a settlement in 2 cases that challenged the US Navy’s training & testing activities off the coasts of Hawaii & Southern California…Earthjustice (says) …. “(it) will secure long-sought protections for whales, dolphins, & other marine mammals by limiting navy activities in vital habitats”… “The Navy can meet its training & testing needs & … provide significant protections to whales & dolphins by limiting the use of sonar & explosives in vital habitat.”

From the broadcast on July 30, 2014:
Despite thousands of comments against opening up the Atlantic Seaboard to offshore oil and gas exploration, President Obama has approved opening up the Eastern Outer Continental Shelf to seismic air-gun surveys, disregarding the revised MARINE ACOUSTIC GUIDELINES, of the National Marine Fisheries Service.  We interview Joshua Horwitz about his new book, WAR OF THE WHALES, the true story of Joel Reynolds, the crusading environmental attorney who uncovered one of the Navy's best kept secrets, a submarine surveillance system that floods entire ocean basins with high-intensity sound, and marine biologist, Ken Balcomb, who discovers the reason for mass strandings of whales.
