KUYI Hopi Radio Develops Strong CSG Compliance Understanding

KYKOTSMOVI, AZ – Since hitting the airwaves in 2000, KUYI has gone through many changes like most stations in regards to programming and management. Today, the team at KUYI is finding footing together, and in the beginning stages of a new fundraising marketing plan that centers on community engagement including a concert series and youth volunteer program. The station’s temporary office is one room with limited space, but that isn’t a challenge for the folks of KUYI who simply love their work.

Sharing on the future of the station, Development and Marketing Coordinator Jennifer Himel states, “We are looking to appeal to a variety of groups that listen to our radio station. It's not changing, it's just marketing our retro vibe to remind our listeners all across Hopi that it's cool to support KUYI. At the end of this month, we are starting a new cycle of volunteer training for potential DJs that includes a variety of local programs from our police to our teachers and even fitness trainers from the gym. We are also debuting new merchandise and we are actively involved with creating content for our Facebook page by showing our listeners that we have fun doing what we do as a public radio station. All of this is in hopes that we'll gain enough community support to be able to throw a concert around harvest time.”
