Our Mission

Fairbanks Open Radio exists to bring independent, noncommercial, listener-supported radio to Interior Alaska.

Our strategy is to educate, entertain, and mobilize our community through operation of a low-power FM radio station.

Fairbanks Open Radio shall be managed and operated exclusively for educational, scientific, and humanistic purposes.

We will broadcast traditionally underrepresented perspectives that reflect the principles under which we organize:

  • For an intersectional understanding of all manners of oppression

  • For the centering of unjustly marginalized people and ideas

  • For self-determination and nonhierarchical configuration

  • For direct action and diverse tactics of resistance

  • For egalitarian distribution of wealth and power

  • For local economy and fair, transparent trade

  • For social and environmental justice

  • For worker solidarity and mutual aid

  • For artistic expression

  • For factual accuracy and logical analysis.

 Fairbanks Open Radio is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to bringing independent radio to Interior Alaska.

We operate KWRK-LP 90.9 FM on unceded Tanana Dené territory in what is also known as Fairbanks, Alaska.
