KALW is a pioneering broadcaster that has grown into one of the most productive and innovative stations in public radio. KALW went on the air in 1941 as the first FM station West of the Mississippi. In the 1970s was one of NPR's first affiliates and the West Coast station of record for the BBC World Service.
In the 21st century, KALW has become a hothouse of original program production, launching the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. It is the home of more than a dozen locally-produced music and arts programs, as well as programs driven by community participation, including Your Call, Philosophy Talk, and the collaborative reporting project Hey Area.
