KRFC’s vision is to be the voice of the community and the soundtrack for Northern Colorado.
We are a non-profit public radio station that serves the Northern Colorado region. Our mission is to make great radio that is local, noncommercial, and volunteer powered. KRFC broadcasts diverse music, community segments and local public affairs. Our shows are programmed and hosted by Volunteers who donate more than 40,000 hours of their time to bring you the great programming you love. In fact, more than 95% of our programming is hosted by real people from Northern Colorado people you probably know!
KRFC is a 501c(3) corporation that is governed by a volunteer board of directors who are elected by members of KRFC to create Station Policies. KRFC has paid staff who help keep things running as smoothly as possible. Programming on KRFC is determined by the Program Director with the input of staff and the KRFC community.
Our primary value is community — the feeling that we all belong and matter to one another. We serve our community. We create a sense of community.
We emphasize local affairs, events and people and make a special effort to include people and views typically lacking in the mainstream media.
We are accountable for our actions. We treat others with tolerance and respect. We go out of our way to be inclusive and to welcome participation.
We strive for excellence in our programming, in our technical product and within our organization.

FREEDOM AND CREATIVITY

We are noncommercial. We are a forum for the varied viewpoints of our volunteers, staff and the broader community.
We embrace a wide spectrum of voices and ideas targeting those typically lacking media access.
We honor and are driven by the passion, energy and creativity of all of our volunteers.
