Radio Boise Adapts To Keep The Music Going During A Pandemic

Matthew Wordell
Treefort Music Festival


Between the technology and the logistics, transitioning quickly to work-from-home as a radio station is not easy. Community radio station Radio Boise has over one hundred radio programmers and DJs, which takes a lot of coordination, even in pre-pandemic times. 

Joining Idaho Matters to talk about the changes they’ve had to make to ensure the music still plays, are Wayne Birt and Jessica Evett, the program director and general manager of KRBX Radio Boise. 

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
