Coast radio wins grant to improve transmitter

Thursday, March 19, 2020

The nonprofit Coast Community Radio received a $7,000 grant from The Templin Foundation of Pacific County, Wash., to repair, replace and update its broadcast equipment.

The public radio’s transmitter site is on Megler Mountain in Pacific County.

“We’re extremely grateful to the Templin Foundation for their generous grant,” Station Manager Graham Nystrom said. “Thanks to the Templin Foundation, our transmitter site will be ready for the next 20 years of community broadcasting in weather fair and foul.”

The Templin Foundation began with an endowment from Russell Templin, a citizen and businessman in Pacific County, in the 1950s. Since the 1990s, when the foundation began awarding grants, it has distributed more than $4 million to causes in south Pacific County.

Coast Community radio broadcasts through three stations, KMUN, KTCB and KCPB.
