Who we are

Southern California Public Radio (SCPR) is a member-supported public media network that operates across the region, reaching from Santa Barbara down to Los Angeles and Orange Counties, and out to the Coachella Valley. We also inform and interact with our communities through our web site, mobile and social media channels and live events.


Our mission is to strengthen the civic and cultural bonds that unite Southern California's diverse communities by providing the highest quality news and information service through radio and other interactive media. We will be a public forum that engages its audiences in an ongoing dialogue and exploration of issues, events and cultures in the region and in the world, seeking to provide greater understanding and new perspectives to the people of these communities and their leaders.

We aim for two-way connection with our communities, listeners and viewers and invite participation in our news discussion through live events, our radio and digital platforms and direct interaction with our staff.
