Mission Statement

Kingston Community Radio(KCR) is a not for profit listener supported broadcasting organization. It is organized to lease air time from commercial broadcasting radio stations to offer the community news and information. Our principle organizational purpose is educational.
Volunteer hosts interview guests and take listener telephone calls to discuss various topics of interest in the community including local, state and national issues. KCR encourages hosts and listeners to take an active role in offering differing viewpoints on issues of a public nature. KCR is a non-partisan organization but would encourage its hosts and listeners to take different viewpoints on topics to foster an interchange of ideas. No musical entertainment is broadcast during the hours of KCRs operation, only information that the Federal Communications Commission would categorize as Public Affairs Programming.
KCR programming is airing weekdays between 7am and 9am on WGHQ, AM 920, in Kingston, NY. The Air time is leased from Robin Hood Radio with donations from the public and area businesses.
