In response to the COVID pandemic affecting our community KZFR has altered our day-to-day operations to encourage social distancing. We have updated our Injury, Illness, and Protection Plan to reflect the concerns about the COVID19 pandemic. 

Our office hours are by appointment only and to schedule an appointment please email We are regularly checking our voicemails, emails, and are doing our best to stay in communication with Programmers, Board of Directors, Committee Members, and our listening audience.

Every Programmer is expected to apply hand sanitizer and wear gloves while they are on-air in the Broadcast Studio. As sharing microphones can be a source of cross contamination between Programmers, our Programmers have been given sanitization spray to apply to windscreens before and after their radio program. Most Programmers have purchased their own windscreens to decrease the possibility of cross contamination. Once the respective Programmer’s radio show comes to a close they are expected to use sanitizing wipes to disinfect the Operating Board and all hardware that has been used during the broadcast. If a Programmer is showing symptoms of COVID19 we ask them to refrain from entering the studio and schedule a substitute for their program. 

Guests are currently not allowed into the studio. Our Programmers have done a wonderful job using our Production Studio to pre-record interviews over the phone. 

We have currently suspended our Training and Certification Process as it requires individuals to be in close contact for a long duration of time. For more information visit

Staff, Committee, and Board of Directors meetings are being held on the ZOOM platform. In following our Open Meeting Policy participation in our meetings can be coordinated by contacting email
