KKCR's New VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR
KKCR is happy to announce we have hired our new Volunteer Coordinator. We had around a dozen people apply for the position and want to thank all who showed interest in working with our volunteers.
Faith Harding has been hired! She is the new Volunteer Coordinator for KKCR.
Faith brings years of experience working in the non-profit sector as well as working with volunteers.
Many of you may already know Faith as she has been an active member of the Kauai community for a number of years. Her earliest involvement with KKCR was in 2007 when she coordinated with Gwen for KKCR to host a rest stop for the Paradise Ride Kauai-Malama Pono's premiere fundraising event. She has answered phones during several KKCR fund drives and has been a guest on a variety of KKCR programs over the years, due to her involvement with Malama Pono, Kauai Community Players and Women in Theatre.
While working with Malama Pono Health Services she managed, mentored and directed radio PSA's with the Condom Sense team of youth ages 18-30 and managed all grant budgets for the program.
Faith brings her creative abilities, excellent communication skills, and her proven appreciation of serving the Kauai community to her new position. We will be having a "meet and greet" soon so you will have the opportunity to introduce yourself and welcome Faith into our KKCR ohana.

COMMUNITY RADIO ON THE GARDEN ISLAND
In the wake of Hurricane `Iniki's devastation in 1992, community members gathered to develop a plan to stay connected, informed and safe. Their brainchild was Kaua`i Community Radio.
In the summer of 1997, KKCR broadcast its first signals island-wide. The small community-based, non-profit radio station connects all the remote communities on the isolated Garden Island. KKCR is committed to providing relevant, accurate, timely information during times of crisis. It's also dedicated to representing the unique character of the island community.
KKCR's program schedule reflects the broad, rich spectrum of Kaua`i's community. Musical genres include vintage and contemporary Hawaiian, Jazz, Alternative, Reggae, World, Classical, Rock and Blues. Kaua`i Live features in-studio performances from local and visiting artists on Sunday evenings.
The Public Affairs programming includes weekly call-in talk shows, a Hawaiian Entertainment Calendar and a Community Calendar. Special interest programs include gardening, island pets, health and wellness, and teen radio.
As a commercial-free, non-profit entity, KKCR's survival depends on support from its community - local and global. Please join KKCR's `ohana (family). To support listener-powered community radio, please click here.
