Mission: Kglp's primary mission is to provide a radio service that encourages intellectual curiosity and critical analysis. Kglp's mandate is to provide for the otherwise un-served tastes and interests of the public in the gallup area and to present materials that challenges the mind, provokes thought, broadens views and educates the whole person.
Programs: Gallup public radio was established to provide gallup and the surrounding areas with public radio. We have enhanced community outreach news, public affairs content and music programming for all our listeners. We have a listener base of 3,000 listeners per week.
Great local and national programming reflecting the uniqueness of the community and urgency of national and international events. Kudos to the hard working station manager for her role in keeping this small operation going with a high quality product.
Working on a shoe string budget with only one full time staff person, several energetic interns, an on call engineer and a dedicated board, KGLP is able to bring local and national programming to a rural area around the clock with little dead air and with the appreciation of a core of dedicated listeners. The local PSA's and weekly local programs keep listeners informed of concerns and events of the area. The music programming is eclectic, providing as source of variety unlike any other station. The NPR news team sounds like home to many who move into the area from afar.
Unlike Public Radio in other markets that are either all Jazz, all classical music or all news; KGLP 91.7 FM is as eclectic as you could imagin. No one likes it all but everyone likes some of what they broadcast.
