KDPI’s mission is to connect and amplify the voices of the Wood River Valley, to build community through a sense of identity and belonging, to stimulate, inspire and educate.
It is an unprecedented time in America with so many noncommercial stations on the air. As we strive to understand and navigate today’s complicated world, community radio plays a critical role in the community. To meet the community’s needs, KDPI officially went live and streaming in April of 2013. KDPI is a bulletin board for the Wood River Valley. We offer a voice of counterculture, social justice, an “alternative” to bigger stations programmed by people that don’t know the uniqueness of this valley.
KDPI serves as a platform for:
- Supporting the many non-profits of our valley
- Effectively and conveniently connecting our community to increase participation, understanding, communication, conflict resolution
- Giving voice to those in our community that might otherwise be unheard
The Wood River Valley is a vibrant area surrounded by majestic mountains offering unique opportunities in outdoor adventures, arts and education. KDPI is the local vehicle providing diverse programming as well as relevant news and information to give the community what we need as humans and individuals- connection and identity. KDPI, we are commercial free community radio.
