MetroEast Community Media, along with a coalition of community groups, received word on May 6, 2008 that its application for a non-commercial, educational (NCE) radio station had been approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). MetroEast Community Media administers eight cable channels and offers video production workshops, providing individuals, community groups and non-profit organizations a way to discuss community issues through video. As our parent organization, it provides administrative assistance and technical support, namely in the production of promotional spots for our media partnerships.
A translator was purchased in 2009. The broadcast area reaches most of the east metro and Portland metro areas. On December 11, 2010, KZME radio announced a new programming partnership with Mt. Hood Community College to serve the Portland metro area, including east county on 107.1 FM and KMHD HD2. That partnership ended on October 15, 2011.
On October 16, 2011, KZME radio started a new broadcasting service with the help of All Classical Public Media by using KQAC HD2 to fully program content on 107.1 FM.
