Voice of North Port Florida

We digital stream broadcast 24/7 through on broadband and we terrestrial broadcast on 97.5 FM for the North Port area community.

All of our programming is created in our community and by our community. That’s what makes us unique and different from both commercial radio and public radio. It’s simply people making radio for the people. Community radio is about building and supporting the well-being and positive growth of our area. It’s about communicating ideas, concerns, differences of opinion, health and financial issues, and the art and music of the community. is non-competitive. We work in conjunction with our area broadcast stations, newspapers and magazines to foster communication and cooperation. KDWRadio does not have a bias for any political persuasion or religious philosophy. Our programming and our management is committed to free speech, presented in a respectful manner, no matter where that speech originates.

All responsible voices are welcome to participate in creating and presenting programming.We want you to listen to the voice of our community, but we also hope you will do more than listen. KDWRadio needs people who would like to create shows, sponsors to support those shows, and volunteers who would like to participate in the production of those programs and the operation of the station.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.”

Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #GivingTuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. Together, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.

#GivingTuesday is a celebration of America’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, community. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.
