Broadcasting Live from the Nevada County Fair

KNCO Newstalk 830 and our sister station, Star 94FM are happy to be at the center of the Nevada County Fairgrounds. We have a chance to meet our listeners and say hello to people we have not seen in a while. The best part, for me, is that we broadcast live from the fair Wednesday through Saturday. We primarily broadcast Star 94FM, as our music format is a great accompaniment to the fair atmosphere. You can walk by the Gazebo and see our staff doing what we do best – live!

Being on the air is the best part of my work at the radio station. I love sharing information and this week, I will gladly take your request. Come by and say hello and let me (or whoever is there) know what you would like to hear. We will do our best to fulfill your request.

P.S. Don’t forget to fill out our survey! You will automatically be entered to win 2 trees (an American Maple and Japanese Maple) installed – courtesy of Weiss Landscaping and BP Landscapes.
