Rainier Valley Radio Request for Program Ideas!

RVR Program FlyerRainier Valley Radio is seeking radio programming ideas/proposals from all interested South- east Seattle residents and organizations in preparation for broadcasting this summer or fall. Proposals can be in the initial idea stage or include specific details. Technical expertise is not a requirement as training will be provided for you to broadcast your program. Not everyone wants to be on the air, so you do not necessarily need to produce your program ideas.

We hope to collect all sorts of ideas, for all types of programming: news, music, emergency preparedness, safety, visual arts, theater, comedy, cultural and civic programs in all languages, health, education, youth, senior services, nature, etc.


We hope to start programming by fall of 2015 and want to get programming ideas from you now. Deadline for applications is June 1, 2015. All programs will be reviewed quarterly

Program Details

Let us know what you will need help with. We’ve listed some areas. If you want to submit an idea only, but do not want to be on the air, let us know. If you do want to be on the air, we will provide training.


Proposals will be ranked on demographic profile, authenticity (speaking for ourselves), creativity, inclusion, community building. Other factors will include production work needed, amount of time applicant will commit to production and cultural representation.

  1. Hello, I may potentially be interested in this opportunity. I am a freelance Audio Producer and focus on field recording, ethnomusicology, and cultural awareness. I would certainly like to juggle some ideas with you guys for some upcoming programming.

    Thank you!

  2. Thanks for your interest in the program. To find out more and talk about your ideas, you can send an email to info@www.kvru.org to connect with Jerri Plumridge, who is coordinating the programming requests.
