Happy Holidays, all! It's been quite the year here at KLCC, one that saw us launching our first podcast, adding a new locally-hosted music show, and sharing important voices from our community on topics that matter to us all.
Thank you for everything you've done for us this year. Now, let's all kick back, and provided that we're not bringing you breaking news, let's plan to enjoy together some holiday programs! Happy New Year!
