Campaign to raise funds begins July 18th and ends August 31st

Sacramento, July 5th, 2016 - KUTZ-FM will launch an online fundraising campaign to cover costs associated with broadcast expenses.

A group of KDVS, 90.3 FM, Davis alumni along with local artists and community members have teamed up to start a new low power radio station in Sacramento. Initial broadcast at 106.9 FM is scheduled to commence in Fall 2016. This campaign’s goal is to raise $7,500 between July 18th and August 31st of this year.

KUTZ-FM’s vision is to broadcast diverse music and public interest programming focused on content which is currently unavailable through other local media outlets.

KUTZ-FM aims to serve as a cultural hub for the city and region of Sacramento. KUTZ is also dedicated to the ‘freeform’ programming format - a format that emphasizes the uniqueness of individual broadcasters and program hosts.

Monies raised during this effort will go toward costs associated with broadcast launch including transmitter and other equipment expenses, website hosting and maintenance fees, and other start-up business related expenses.  

KUTZ-FM plans to offer local businesses the opportunity to underwrite or sponsor upcoming events and future programming.

KUTZ-FM is part of a grassroots movement that seeks to differentiate itself from the generic commercial programming that predominates our airwaves today. It supports the return to a more personable and community focused experience that can be offered by local media.  

Donations toward this effort will be accepted at Indiegogo.com.
