KPOV seeks aspiring young DJs, broadcasters


Do you know an aspiring DJ between the ages of 10-14? Are you or your children looking for a fun and creative way to spend spring break. If so, KPOV’s Spring Break Youth Radio Camp is just for them.

This camp teaches our community’s youth how to DJ, interview friends, talk live on the air as well as tell stories with sound effects, music, and humor. What’s more, KPOV will help this group produce a one-hour radio show that will be broadcast on KPOV, 88.9 FM. Students will even be able to take home a copy to share with friends and family.

The Camp takes place March 25 – 29, from 9 a.m. to noon at the KPOV studios in downtown Bend, and is for youth ages 10-14.

Bend Parks and Recreation partners with KPOV to produce Youth Radio Camp. Registration is available on the Bend Parks and Recreation website, Do a word search for KPOV. For questions, go to or call 541-322-0863.
