The Progressive Radio Northwest (PRNW) team will be using the summer months to build awareness and support of our efforts to bring progressive talk back to the Pacific Northwest … and we need your help! 

Host a Stop on the “Summer of Progressive Radio Listening Tour”

This can be an event at an accessible local venue or in your home. It can be a Potluck, Bar-B-Q or simple meetup. We will need a spot with internet access … read on to learn why!


We’ll provide a moderator and outreach materials; we’re asking that our hosts make the event arrangements and help spread the word in your communities.

We also plan to tape the sessions for broadcast when we launch our website radio station, which will serve as a model for the future terrestrial format. You and your friends could be on the radio!


We want to carry the call for progressive radio throughout the Greater Puget Sound. Our plan is to have a series of localized town halls for you to share your ideas on how the next progressive station can be structured and other progressive issues of note.

For the Pilot Phase, we hope to work with hosts who think they can attract 20 or more guests. And yes, we will also be using the event to raise funds for our First Ever Nitty Gritty Just the Basics No Glam Grassroots Fundraising Campaign. Startup costs may not be very alluring .... but  they don't go away.
