And, Indigenous Peoples’ Day isn’t the only time we lift up these voices. Since we launched our station in 2017, KRSM has been a platform for voices, stories, and conversations that are often misrepresented or just missing entirely from traditional media outlets. As a truly community-based station, our hosts and content reflect the conversations and folks who live in our South Minneapolis community. Specifically —
- You’ll find our programming is in 6 different languages.
- We broadcast 12 hours of programming each week by Indigenous-identifying hosts (more than triple what you can find on the entire rest of the dial currently!).
- 84% of our hosts identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.
- Our schedule features shows amplifying the voices of the incarcerated and recently incarcerated, youth of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, refugees, & other communities you don’t often find on the dial or in other media outlets.
So hey, we’d love if you celebrated Indigenous Peoples’ Day with us this October 14th. If you’re in South Minneapolis, tune into 98.9 FM or else listen from ANYWHERE on krsmradio.org or on our iOS/Android mobile apps. Wherever you’re at, we’ve got you covered this October 14th.
