Thanks for keeping KALW strong and listener-supported!

Thanks to everyone who helped make KALW's May campaign a success.  It's the station's historic 75th year on the air, and this was a big campaign for the future of KALW.   And thanks to you, we have reached our goal!

More than 2400 listeners gave more than $352,000 dollars before the campaign wrapped up on Friday morning -- 94% of our campaign goal of $375,000.  Then, over the weekend, donations continued to flow in, helping us reach our goal before Monday morning!

We are so grateful to the community that has sustained and grown Local Public Radio over the past 75 years -- and excited about what we can create together going forward.

Matt Martin was KALW’s general manager from 2006 through 2018. Under his leadership, KALW grew into one of the most productive and innovative stations in public radio. Programs launched at KALW during Matt’s tenure as GM include the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. He helped create the station’s Audio Academy, a year-long program aimed at developing new talents in public radio, and led the first broad-based strategic planning process in the station’s history.
