We have a live audience on Fridays and it's FREE! All we ask of you is an hour and a half of your day (8:30-10am) and your enthusiasm. Call 503-231-4610 or send an email to amnw@katu.com. Let us know a Friday or two that work for you along with how many people would like to attend. We'll call you back to confirm. We also place your name on a list, so there’s no need for tickets. Just sign in when you arrive.

How can my non-profit organization get a free 30 second on-air annoucement?
On Fridays we invite non-profit organizations, schools and charity groups to air a FREE 30-second promotional announcement on our show in exchange for bringing 15 people to sit in our studio audience. If you're interested please call our AM Northwest at 503-231-4610 or email amnw@katu.com for more information.

The studios are located at 2153 N.E. Sandy Blvd. and you can park anywhere along most of the nearby streets —just be aware a few blocks are marked "30-minute parking." Also, do not park in the paved lot to the west of KATU. It's a monthly "pay-to-park" lot and you will be towed.
