KNKX Community

Right now, another way KNKX is connecting to our community during COVID-19 is getting the word out about things organizations and individuals around the region are doing to serve their communities.  Folks throughout our listening area have created or made available virtual/online content (live music, live streamed community conversations, art that you can enjoy from home, educational tools), and others have stepped up to help their neighbors in need.

If you want to get the word out about something you’re offering, we’d love to hear about it.  The KNKX Community page will be updated regularly. Please e-mail community@knkx.org with your information which should consist of just the facts (event title,  date and time, a short description and--very important--a URL or other link where listeners can get more details). And be sure to ask questions if you have them.
