KIDE fostered the endeavor to create a Business Plan for what became the 7 Rivers Radio Network. The 7RRN is the collaboration of four independent community radio stations, three in Humboldt County and one in Mendocino County that agreed to simulcast special live broadcasts on pressing social, environmental, transportation, health or housing issues that are in common in our North Coast bioregion.

KIDE is fostering the creation of the first California Tribal Radio Network. The FCC has recently awarded FM radio licenses to two other California Tribes. The Karuk Tribe will have two radio stations in their territory, and the Pala Band of Mission Indians will have one radio station in their region. KIDE will uplink our broadcast to the satellite so the three new stations can download and repeat the KIDE programming during the majority of their broadcast time. This action reduces the overhead of the new respective stations and expands the coverage area of KIDE.

CTRN is an opportunity for more Native California tribespeople and tribal community people to add their voice to the public airwaves. The operation of the networked stations allows the three tribes to share daily news features, cultural folkways, and creative storytelling. Being able to tell ones’ own story is an act of tribal sovereignty.

 


 

KIDE-FM is dedicated to improving the quality of life in eastern Humboldt County. We foster social justice and advocate for environmental justice. We are involved with the well being of the community that sustains us. We reach out to community members giving workshops on how to use the media; how to do professional interviews and how to use KIDE as a tool for social marketing to advocate for positive change.

Your foundation grant or private donation keeps the efforts of KIDE-FM progressive in action and character.

Business

Radio is a business. KIDE is in the business of promoting Social Justice and advocating Environmental Justice. We provide the community with valuable information that allows people to make better choices. We offer a means to voice concern about people, place, and safety. We build community one voice at a time.

Our donors have chosen to support our work. Every donation received releases other funds to address further issues and needs. Local businesses can partially underwrite our broadcast time; or a company, organization or individual can partially underwrite the costs of any of our programs. Regardless of your choice, you are assisting us in providing valuable information to our community. Together we are building a community.


What is Underwriting? As a non-commercial educational license, “Underwriting” is a way you, the community, and businesses can help support our efforts to inform, educate, and entertain the community.  As opposed to the role of “commercial” media that promotes the sale of products and services to you, KIDE tries to give you essential information that allows you to make informed choices. Large companies spend large amounts of money on promoting their products on commercial media.  Companies seldom spend large sums of money to foster informed decisions.  Non-commercial media fosters community values. Knowledge is valuable.  Sharing quality information costs as much money as promoting products.  We depend on the community, foundations, and to some extent, businesses to underwrite our efforts to do good, to help us address a better quality of life.

What financial assistance does KIDE receive? The FCC licensed KIDE to the Hoopa Valley Tribal members 18 years of age and older.  The Hoopa Valley Tribal Council financially assists KIDE with free building space, indirect support services and by paying the wages of four core managers.  The Corporation for Public Broadcasting awards KIDE annual funds based on the amount local donations received.  KIDE is awarded the basic CPB award.  As we gain more local donations and we earn more underwriting support, our CPB award will increase accordingly.
