About Us

Who We Are

KX FM (KXRN-LP 104.7) was founded October 15, 2012 in Laguna Beach, CA. Since then, the KX FM full-time staff and more than 100 volunteers aim to create radio that is meaningful, locally-oriented, and focused on music discovery. KX FM is Human Crafted Radio.

Mission Statement

KX FM aims to lead the rebirth of FM radio, enriching our listeners with the discovery of alternative music, views, and culture that elevates Laguna Beach on a global scale.


Locally-focused FM radio is vital to a community.

Value Statements

  • We believe our audience can be connected through a local radio station that immerses itself into the arts, culture, events, and music of a community.
  • We believe talented, under-recognized musicians deserve exposure, and we strive to be a resource for them.
  • We believe that our audience is witty, intelligent, and sophisticated in their musical taste. We aim to entertain at a level that exceeds that of commercial radio.
  • Responsiveness, availability, and communication are a priority for our staff and volunteers.
  • We are dedicated to developing the talents of on-air hosts, student interns, and special needs volunteers.
  • We strive to bring people together through real-time, live announcing about local news, weather, traffic, and emergency preparedness.
