Local, independent and non-commercial
Serving the mid-Willamette Valley
88.5 FM and kmuz.org
Voted “Best Radio Station” – 2012 and 2013!
What is KMUZ?
KMUZ 88.5 FM is a listener-supported, all-volunteer community radio station licensed in Turner, Oregon. Our signal reaches throughout the mid-Willamette Valley, from Salem to Albany, from Stayton to Monmouth and even includes the Santiam Canyon. Our mission is to celebrate and connect communities through locally-produced talk shows, information, music, and events.
Who runs this radio station?
KMUZ is 100% local! Residents of the mid-Willamette Valley are our DJs, program hosts, fundraisers, technicians, and office staff. This is a grassroots operation that was created to provide a voice for our community. We have a Board of Directors who makes executive decisions that are in the best interest of strengthening our home-grown community station.
