Amplifying Community


The Boulder Community Broadcast Association, Inc. envisions an actively engaged global community rooted in mutual respect, working together to advance a more equitable, just, and environmentally sustainable society that ensures all peoples access to and participation in independent media.

Central to this vision is our “Amplifying Community” Capital Campaign,  generating funds for KGNU’s future Boulder headquarters, studios, and community media center.

The first $1.25 million donated to our campaign will be matched by a City of Boulder capital improvements grant, thanks to the City of Boulder voters who overwhelmingly supported the 2017 Community, Culture, and Safety ballot initiative that helped to provide the matching award

KGNU’s Mission

KGNU is an independent, noncommercial community radio station licensed in Boulder and Denver and dedicated to serving its listeners.

We seek to stimulate, educate and entertain our audience, to reflect the diversity of the local and world community, and to provide a channel for individuals, groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed or under-represented by other media.

The station seeks to expand the listening audience through the excellence of its programming without compromising the principles stated here.

Serving Boulder and Denver for Over 45 Years

KGNU depends on community volunteers, coordinated by paid staff, to produce quality programming. It relies on its audience for financial support. The Board of Directors of the Boulder Community Broadcast Association, Inc., is the licensee and is legally responsible for the conduct of station activities. The Board hires a manager who is responsible for managing the station and hiring other staff. The Board, Staff and Volunteers are committed to collaborating with each other.
