LOCAL RADIO STATION: Just because a radio station is in our local area, doesn’t mean they are a “local radio station”. Do you realize that the majority of Lafayette based radio stations are owned by out of state and/or out of country interest, and are part of the huge Corporate Broadcasting business that is killing “local radio” everywhere! Also, keep in mind that the big money profits from those stations are sent to their corporate offices, again, out of state and/or out of country, which means money leaving our local economy!!
IMPORTANT: KBON 101.1FM is a 100% locally owned REAL “LOCAL” STATION that went on the air 05/29/97 with the main intention being the promotion of our local area, music & culture EVERYDAY, 24/7/365. We didn’t “jump on the bandwagon” only after we saw another station be successful with it. KBON does what it does because we are, have always been and will always be “LOUISIANA PROUD”. We didn’t just one day decide that our business might do well if we would do local music… KBON WAS PUT ON THE AIR BECAUSE I SINCERELY LOVE AND RESPECT OUR LOCAL MUSIC and recognize how important it is in making our area & people unique to the world!!!
