Community Service Groups converged on Kalmiopsis School to unpack the Buses from last weeks Stuff the Bus Effort spearheaded by KURY radio and Rogue Credit Union. One of the organizers stated $3,000 Cash was raised along with many valuable coupons to local businesses. Organizers said that this was also one of the best years ever for School supplies.
This was the tenth year this community effort has garnered school supplies for kids otherwise unable to afford them. Superintendent Sean Gallager, in his first year as District 17C Superintendent was elated at the effort and was to witness the effort.
KURY AM is the heritage radio station in the Brookings-Harbor area. It began broadcasting in 1964 and has served the community since then in a variety of formats. As the community has evolved over the years, so too has KURY AM. With the median adult age in the area nearly 64, the station has embraced this half of the community with programming and outreach efforts.

The programming is specifically designed with the leading edge of the Boomer demographic group (and their older brothers and sisters) in mind. We air Fox Radio News hourly to provide current information. Throughout the day, we have lifestyle programming (gardening, travel, finance, etc.) to offer more data about how to enjoy life a bit more. There’s Brookings-Harbor Voices, local commentary provided by local community members. All of this is blended with a music format specifically presented for folks 50 years old and beyond: popular songs from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s highlighted with current songs for the mature adult’s enjoyment.
KURY AM is also the radio home of the Oregon State Beavers. We broadcast Beavers Football, Men’s Basketball and Baseball. Our sports coverage provides excitement from September through May as the Beavers do battle on the field of athletics.
