GIVING TUESDAY–SUPPORT KNSJ INDEPENDENT PUBLIC COMMUNITY RADIO

Friends,

As we approach the end of another year in America, one thing is clear. We’re grappling with a lot. Democracy is in peril. Gun violence, antisemitism, racially-motivated hate crimes, and the wealth-gap are all on the rise. The rampant spread of misinformation throughout our increasingly corporatized digital media platforms means that now more than ever, independent media is critical to the democratic discussion. This is why KNSJ matters. In our nine years on the air, KNSJ has featured live debates between candidates for City Council and the Mayor’s office, live productions from rallies for climate action, labor rights, civil rights, the PRIDE parade, and the Women’s March. We have more science and environment-based programs than all the other stations in San Diego County combined. The service we provide to our listeners doesn’t stop at our Public Affairs programming. KNSJ is continuing to develop the best independent music programming schedule you’ll find in the entire county. Night in and night out, listeners who tune to 89.1 FM or stream online at knsj.org will hear an incredibly eclectic array of music that will not be found on any of the corporately-monopolized stations that dominate the airwaves. In 2023, KNSJ hopes to relocate to a bigger and better studio, strengthen our terrestrial signal, continue to expand our locally-produced programming schedule, and strengthen our ties to the community through live-music events and youth-based radio-production opportunities. This Giving Tuesday, we hope that you will consider contributing to the cause of Social Justice community radio in San Diego County by becoming a member of KNSJ. Your donation will not only help KNSJ accomplish our goals, but will also help to counteract the dangerous spread of misinformation throughout the digital landscape with the type of truth-telling that only independent media can provide. Thank you for your support and donations. Donate Today (for as little as $24/year you can become a member!) knsj.org #knsj
