Radio Kingston is a non-commercial platform dedicated to a vibrant, just and healthy Kingston centered around community storytelling, artistic and musical expression, conversation and connection.
At a time when growing polarization, media consolidation, privatization and exploitation of community resources threaten the basic fabric of local communities, Radio Kingston hopes to demonstrate that a radically different path is possible. It will create a space for residents to build renewed trust, empathy and connection, while celebrating our shared strengths and creativity, and deepening a truly local conversation about creating a community that works better for everyone.
Through music, conversation, spoken-word performances, educational programming and more, Radio Kingston will reflect and celebrate one of the city’s greatest strengths – its diversity – and will be guided by a commitment to lifting up voices not often heard in other media. Together, its programs will offer a chance for all residents to engage, listen and learn from each other.
