for arts programming  
Broadcasting since 1941, KALW 91.7 FM is the oldest non-commercial FM signal west of the Mississippi, and reaches up to 150,000 listeners weekly. The public station offers national and international news from NPR and the BBC, as well as a host of local programming that includes the arts program Crosscurrents, airing more than 180 features annually on the Bay Area arts and culture community. A grant to KALW will support the expansion of its arts and culture reporting and the development of a new show, "Sights and Sounds," a multi-platform project highlighting the perspectives and creations of Bay Area artists, with an emphasis on creative people with roots in underserved communities. Likewise, KALW seeks to build upon its strengths in arts reporting, expanding a series of live events in underserved communities that draws upon stories and segments from the respective neighborhoods.
