KYBU: Round Valley Community Radio broadcasts a mix of music, news, interviews, and locally-relevant information to the community of Round Valley. KYBU fills the communication gap between community members and creates a forum for community, business and public service announcements. KYBU volunteers provide training for those new to radio production, providing the opportunity for any individual or group a way to share music or ideas. KYBU rebroadcasts local and nationally syndicated news and talk shows on a variety of topics, adding to the continuing education of community members. KYBU is inclusive – everyone is welcome to help support our mission statement by volunteering, becoming a member or business underwriter or sponsoring the station.
As a nonprofit volunteer organization, KYBU community radio station will focus on programming that is informative, engaging, entertaining, empowering, inspiring, and respectful of the diversity of its listeners while preserving local cultural history and encouraging wellness, prosperity, and a greater sense of community.
KYBU provides a forum for sharing information pertinent to the Round Valley community in a manner that is inclusive and progressive; to help our community become more unified; to increase our knowledge and experience through new radio technology; and to provide ongoing training for local volunteers seeking to become involved, thereby developing new technical and leadership skills.
KYBU is a project of the nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation, the Friends of the Round Valley Public Library.
