KQED is Northern California’s largest public broadcasting media outlet. Nationally, it is one of the most-watched Public Broadcasting Service television stations during primetime, and the most-listened-to National Public Radio member station, with 800,000 listeners each week. With renewed support, KQED would continue to develop its multi-platform arts editorial strategy, which emphasizes the centrality of arts to civic life and the cultural vitality of the San Francisco Bay Area. Support would enable KQED to further develop its Arts Service by hiring reporters and producers to develop original material for television, radio, the internet, mobile applications, and educational uses, as well as reach more people using digital platforms.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Campaign 21 building project  
KQED is an NPR-member radio station owned by Northern California Public Broadcasting in San Francisco. A grant to KQED will support the Campaign 21 building project, a $135 million community investment. This effort will lead to an increase in digital capacity and original programming, the hiring of journalists and audience engagement staff, updates to its technological infrastructure, and building renovations. The newly renovated building, expected to be completed in 2021, will make it possible for KQED to serve the community and become a major convener of civil dialogue in the Bay Area.
