Special Announcement Regarding COVID-19 and Programming

Mar 16, 2020

KLCC News is fully devoted to bringing you the latest, most reliable information on the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.  As a result, we are implementing policies to maintain the availability of this essential news and programming service.

To safeguard the health of all team members, we are limiting the number of individuals meeting and working in the KLCC studios and implementing offsite operation in some instances.  KLCC staff have also been asked to curtail in person gatherings and studio guests.  As a result, some KLCC music shows will be encore broadcasts or replacement programming until further notice.  This is a difficult decision and we will continue to evaluate options for a return to normal operations.

Membership support has allowed KLCC to become an important source of information and entertainment for our community.  We take your trust seriously and thank you for being our partners at this critical time.

There will be a lot of different programs coming your way over these next weeks. Check back here for updates of what we're airing and when.
