Thank you to the more than 2000 listeners who gave their support during KALW's September membership campaign.  You sustain the station, and inspire us in the work.

We did fall significantly short of our goal of $400,000.  If you can help us close the gap in the next few days, we would welcome your support.

Some people in the Bay Area got an unfiltered view of the eclipse. In San Francisco, a thin fog and cloud layer allowed viewing through ordinary sunglasses. In other socked in spots, the eclipse was not visible. KALW reporters around the region and in other states recorded reactions of onlookers.

Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me, the NPR News Quiz, is coming to San Francisco for two live tapings at Davies Symphony Hall -- Thursday, August 10th and Friday, August 11th at 7:30pm.

Be part of the show with Peter Sagal, Bill Kurtis, the panel and their special guests.  Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am at City Box Office.

Crosscurrents' 10 best stories of 2016

Dec 14, 2016

In the last year, many remarkable story lines have shaped the San Francisco Bay Area: the affordability crisis changed the face of the region; local newsrooms united to call attention to entrenched homelessness and possible solutions; the California drought continued for a sixth year; Donald Trump was elected president. We mourned the Ghost Ship fire.

91.7 KALW seeks talented on-air personalities to serve as announcer operators on an as-needed basis.  The position requires knowledge of broadcast operations, including production of both talk and music programs.  Candidates should have a strong on-air presence and the ability to deliver written copy with fluency.  Knowledge of public radio a plus, as is proximity to KALW’s studios in San Francisco.  Women and people of color strongly encouraged to apply.  This is an as-needed position; shifts will vary.

A huge thanks to everyone who supported KALW's September campaign.  When all was said and done, more than 2700 listeners donated over $367,000 to Local Public Radio.

That's 98% of our ambitious goal of $375,000, making this the most successful September campaign ever at KALW.  The station is strong and ready to invest for the future, with no more on-air fundraising until next May.

When Heather Hernandez saw that KALW was seeking questions from listeners via Hey Area, she wrote in and asked, "Who has worked at KALW the longest?" We invited Heather to the station to interview some of our longest-standing employees. Steven Short — the original KALW newsroom volunteer — helped.

One of the Bay Area’s main attractions is its proximity to nature. Only 45 minutes separate Bay Area residents from arriving at the ocean, the mountains, or a hiking trail. But not everybody experiences the Bay Area’s natural beauty.
