On October 26, 2003, KYRS began broadcasting. From humble beginnings came great things, as KYRS now streams across parts of six countries. For the past 10 years, KYRS has a filled a need that other radio stations haven’t, providing underrepresented members of the community with an outlet to express themselves. Producing youth, senior, arts and Spanish-language programs, offering open poetry and playing local music, KYRS’ radio waves support a diverse community. Celebrating a decade on air, the station invites friends and supporters down to Silver Auctions for a night of live salsa music and dancing, food and drinks and a silent auction to reflect on how far it has come and ensure its continued success.
