KZYX is holding elections for its Board of Directors.

There are six positions open: one each for Mendocino County Supervisorial Districts 2 (Ukiah), 3 (Willits) & 5 (Anderson Valley), two At-Large seats, and the programmer-elected seat.

To fill one of these positions you must be a member in good standing at the time of application, be able to carry out the responsibilities of a member of the Board of Directors, a list of which is available on the Elections webpage, and submit an application by 5PM on January 30th, 2018.


The KZYX Winter Pledge Drive is coming soon! We are looking for volunteers to answer phones during daytime shifts between Friday 16 February and Thursday 22 February. Signing up for a 3-hour shift to answer telephones is a great way to help Promote Community Through Public Radio, have some fun and learn more about how KZYX operates. If you are interested in being a station volunteer, and have decent handwriting and good hearing, please give us a call at 707-895-2324. Ask for "membership" and see if we have a shift that works for you!


Real Estate Magazine

Real Estate Magazine of Mendocino County, a monthly community magazine, showcased Mendocino County Public Broadcasting in its November 2017 issue by publishing a story headlined "Public Radio Saves The Day" about KZYX Radio's response to the Mendocino Lake Complex Fire and the importance of community radio to public safety and community life. The story is reprinted here in its entirety, courtesy of Real Estate Magazine.

“It came through so fast, and there wasn’t enough fuel for anything to ignite,” one firefighter told KZYX. “This shows why a defensible perimeter is so important.”

KZYX resumed normal broadcasting on Sunday afternoon after technical difficulties at the main studio in Philo caused the loss of our broadcast signal for more than one hour.  

We appreciate your patience and understanding.
