Radio and television excited southern Oregonians and helped connect the regionís largely agricultural and rural timber communities to a larger world. Pioneers, fired with a sense of adventure and technological zeal, started the first radio and television stations and nurtured them into an industry upon which their communities deeply relied.

The following links will guide you through the stories, the stations, and some of the people that were seminal to the development of the broadcasting industry in southern Oregon.
