KZMU is a grassroots, community radio station isolated in the dramatic landscapes of Canyonlands and the Colorado Plateau. Our home is the small tourist town of Moab, Utah, more than 100 miles from the nearest city. For 23 years, KZMU has truly been an aural oasis in the desert airwaves of Southeastern Utah.
Local volunteer DJs program our airwaves, along with a small part-time staff. Our public affairs programming includes Moab City Council meetings broadcast live, and interviews with community movers and shakers. We air Democracy Now, Alternative Radio and a selection of regional productions.
KZMU is also about music, all kinds of music, connecting community members to one another, to the wider world and having fun while we’re at it. We aren’t particularly polished, we don’t always know what we’re going to do next, but you can be sure that whatever you hear will be spontaneous, fun and full of positive energy. Indeed, our mission statement is to “inform, educate, engage, entertain and delight.”
