Yuma, AZ (October 1, 2018) – The first-ever pledge drive for KOFA Border Radio will be taking place Wednesday, October 3, until Saturday, October 6, at 11 a.m.
Arizona Western College President Dr. Daniel Corr will kick off the drive as the first guest DJ at 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.
After being known for 48 years as KAWC AM1320, the station transitioned to KOFA 1320 Border Radio on April 30. Colorado River Public Media’s new all-music service features significantly more local music and student-hosted programming.
The format shift was one of 12 AWC Innovation Fund Projects funded in January as part of the AWC Strategic Plan 2025. When creating projects, Innovation Fund teams focused on efforts that will help produce student-centered, thriving communities.
KOFA Border Radio is geared towards music lovers who want a commercial-free alternative to the same old, same old and who love an eclectic mix of great music from top artists in all music genres. The station broadcasts on 1320AM in Yuma, on the Arizona Community Radio Network in Northern Arizona, on the RadioFX app, on the Tune-In app and on www.borderradioaz.org.
Meanwhile, KAWC News at 88.9FM continues to provide NPR and BBC News, and local coverage from the KAWC Newsroom.
