Independent Media Must Stay Strong!


Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

"There's an atmospheric river coming directly toward the coast," National Weather Service meteorologist Charles Bell told the San Francisco Chronicle. The second storm coming Thursday is expected to bring PROLONGED HIGH RAINFALL, greater than Wednesday.


With large waves expected to be generated by the storms, the U.S. Coast Guard is warning people to stay away from jetties and rocky areas along the coast.

The Coast Guard is also urging boat owners to avoid taking to the water during the next few days, and to make sure their boats are properly secured during the storms.



Humboldt State University has formed an academic institute devoted to marijuana.

The Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research plans to sponsor scholarly lectures and coordinate research among 11 faculty members from fields such as economics, geography, politics, psychology and sociology.

The Times-Standard of Eureka reports that one professor is studying recent campaigns to legalize marijuana, while another is investigating the environmental effects of pot cultivation.

The institute is probably the first dedicated to examining marijuana through the lens of multiple disciplines. 

Now that voters in Colorado and Washington have passed marijuana legalization measures this month, the institute has even more reason to exist. Politics professor Jason Plume is giving a lecture on the marijuana reform movement on Tuesday night, one of seven public talks the institute plans to host this year.




Following a dispute between the Lake Co news and Sheriff Frank Rivero, the Lake Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved a new policy for releasing information to the media.

Chair Rob Brown said the policy was enacted because of "Rivero's disregard of the Lake County News ."

Interim County Administrative Officer Matt Perry prepared a policy that would be followed during a county emergency.

Deputy Administrative Officer Debra Sommerfield is the county's public information officer during emergency situations. She will distribute news releases to any news organizations that did not receive them.

John Jensen, co-founder of Lake County News (LCN), requested a policy because he alleged Rivero "exclusively blacklisted" LCN from receiving media releases and other information from the Lake County Sheriff's Office (LCSO).

He said LCN must file a public records request "for any information at all" now. He alleged this was the result of a "personal vendetta" by Rivero.

In a phone interview, Rivero said, "LCN is not blacklisted." He alleged LCN published articles that were "absolutely false."



On Monday, December 3,  CAL FIRE Mendocino Unit firefighters will be out on the streets of Ukiah to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association to help Jerry’s Kids.

The “Fill-the-Boot” fundraiser will be at the intersection of Airport Park Boulevard and Hastings Avenue (by Applebee’s Restaurant). 

The “Fill-the-Boot” fundraiser will be from 9:00am to 3:00pm. 

When you drop dollars into the firefighter’s boot, you are supporting local MDA services, research for neuromuscular diseases, a clinic at UC Davis, summer camps and community education programs. 

The MDA does not receive funding from state, federal or local governments, nor does it seek or receive fees for services it provides. 







the Annual KZYX Holiday Gift Auction will return to the airwaves for four evenings, Monday, Dec. 3, through Thursday, Dec. 6.

From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. regular evening programming will be preempted in favor of this fast-paced and entertaining fundraiser for KZYX.

They will be auctioning, live on the air to the highest bidders, a wide array of gift items – from arts and crafts, to goods and services- all donated by local businesses, artists and craftspeople.

Many items are available for viewing on the station’s Web site, .

Tune in and catch the action.




Talking About California; Thursday @ 9:00 AM

In the final program of the series, Cal Winslow talks with Nelson Lichtenstein, the  Professor in History at the UC Santa Barbara, where he directs the Center for Work, Labor and Democracy. He will talk about the future of labor in California.
