Hood River, OR July 12, 2014– Radio Tierra, KZAS, was awarded a $29,593 grant from the Meyer Memorial Trust this month. The funds will be used to gather community input and develop a five year plan on how best to serve the Columbia Gorge in programming and technology.
The grant will allow the station to proceed with installing an antenna in the Parkdale area to provide service to the upper valley. Since its beginning 14 years ago, the station has run by volunteers. The grant will allow the station to now hire a station director.
