Calling all Helping Hands!

As your independent, public community radio station, KEOS invites and depends on the listeners served by our broadcast signal to get involved as volunteers with virtually all aspects of station operations.

Our amazing volunteers serve as on-air programmers, bringing listeners like you the music, news and public affairs programs you love. There are also many behind-the-scenes volunteers doing event management, facilities maintenance, committee service, music library work, answering pledge phones and much more.

We need YOU to help keep us on the air. Learn more about how you can get involved today. Thank you, Brazos Valley!

Thank you KEOS Listeners

Reveal: Award-Winning Investigative Journalism

Tune in Wednesdays at 6:00pm for Reveal, the Peabody Award-winning investigative journalism program for public radio hosted by Al Letson. We’ve heard the corporate-sponsored news, but we want to know what really happened. That’s what Reveal is all about: finding out what’s going on behind the scenes, and what’s hidden from public view. Here’s Reveal’s guide to spotting fake news.

This week’s episode, “America’s Drug War, Revealed,” shows how a baggie of crack cocaine packed with fear, distortion and misconceptions, and one presidential address in the 1980s, helped shape the war on drugs.
