 KBOO now works with over 500 volunteers, twelve Board of Director members, and fourteen staff. On average, 81,580 people listen to KBOO on a weekly basis and over 5,000 of those people are members. They broadcast “forty eight hours a day” with twenty four hours of on air programming and a growing online archive.. Every month, KBOO conducts 20-30 hours of training for youth and adults. In addition, KBOO provides 60-80 hours a month of one-on-one mentorship in radio production.

 The station highlights the work people are doing to improve the world — locally, nationally, and internationally. The ongoing community building experiment of KBOO is still going strong after 50 years of existence.
