Welcome to Progressive Radio Northwest's home on the Internet.
We’re Progressive Radio Northwest (PRNW), a Washington state nonprofit working to amplify the pulse and the power behind each and every progressive voice in the greater Puget Sound.
We got together in 2013 when KPTK-AM, Seattle’s only strong signal progressive talk station, was switched to sports by its East Coast corporate owner. Two petition drives were launched in protest and, in the months that followed, thousands of you signed on. From the San Juans to Olympia, the Eastside to the Olympics, your message was clear … Bring. Back. Progressive. Talk.
We heard your call … we got to work … and now we need your help to bring it home.
Announcing Progressive Radio 2.0
The stakes couldn’t be higher in this critical election cycle, so beginning this fall, PRNW will be launching a series of original podcasts as the first phase of a dedicated, high-impact progressive media platform. The shows will be produced by award-winning producer/writer Tina Nole, former producer for Ron Reagan's program on Air America, CBS News Radio Network and now owner of Larj Media in Seattle.
We’ll start with one weekly podcast, featuring some well-known names and a diverse local team, before expanding to a more frequent schedule. This is Phase One of our larger, longterm plans for digital and terrestrial progressive programming.
Join the Progressive Radio Revival
The silencing of KPTK progressive talk was a great loss. Especially since Seattle is a bright blue city and our only talk radio options are right wing and extreme right wing. It’s way past time for the thousands of progressive voices throughout the greater Puget Sound to have a dedicated media platform to call our own … a place to learn the latest, express our ideas, advocate for change and make a real difference. Because isn’t that what it’s all about?
