Since 1983, Coast Community Radio has relied on volunteers – both on and off the air – to bring community radio to the Lower Columbia Pacific Region.  Along with our members and underwriters, volunteers are at the very core of the Tillicum Foundation.

If you are interested in volunteering at the radio station, please send us an email at volunteer@coastradio.org or stop by the station during business hours (9AM-5PM, Monday-Friday).  We are always looking for personable, invested community members to greet guests and callers to the station, digitize our music library and help with tasks around the Tillicum House or at events.  Volunteer shifts can be as flexible as you are, so please join us and lend a bit of time and value to your community radio.

Interested in hosting your own show?  Programmer training AKA “Radio 101” happens a few times a year for our off-air volunteers who are interested in becoming on-air programmers for KMUN or KCPB.  We highly encourage volunteer participation prior to taking the Radio Class.

*COVID-era NOTE: In order to insure the safety of our staff and volunteers, we are currently not scheduling new programmer training sessions. Submitted applications will be kept on file until it is safe to meet in person again. If you have any questions, please contact our Program Director: emily@coastradio.org
