A Partnership with United Way of San Luis Obispo County
United Way of San Luis Obispo County has received a Construction Permit
to create a 100 watt, non-profit, Low Power Radio station in the South County.
The call letters will be KYXZ-LP and will reside at 107.9 FM on the radio dial.
(That’s the very top of the "dial!")
Excellent Radio (1995-98) was among the early pioneers of the movement
to create a process by which communities could legally apply for positions
on the publicly owned airwaves. The station was created as a model that
became an inspiration to many other communities throughout the United
In 1998 the Grover Beach City Council issued an official proclamation
recognizing Excellent Radio for broadcasting City Council meetings for
three years and providing...
• A forum for community members to discuss local issues”
• A diverse cultural selection of musical entertainment”
• Easy and convenient access to local government information”
• Educating and entertaining members of the community”
Today through a coming together of groups like
United Way, and friends and advocates for the local
county libraries, the likelihood of successful community
strengthening is huge! The new Excellent Radio is
dedicated to fostering….
• Cross–Generational respect
• Cultural Literacy
• Recognition of the Libraries as the centerpiece of the
community (The Commons)
• Mentoring through United Way’s outreach programs
of Health, Education and Income
The creation of this station has a lot to do with the overall
strengthening and educating our community for years to come.
What better gift for our children could we give today?
The transmitter and antenna are on the Nipomo Mesa
overlooking the entire South County.
