Grassroots Public Radio RGV is a nonprofit set up by enthusiasts of National Public Radio.

Our five directors are:

  • Edgar Lopez of Mission, Texas (President)
  • Federico Garza of San Benito, Texas (Treasurer)
  • Shawn Seale of McAllen, Texas
  • Ron Rogers of Weslaco, Texas
  • Steve Taylor of McAllen, Texas

We set up the group when we learned KHID 88.1 FM and KJJF 88.9 FM were being sold by the Diocese of Brownsville and, as a result, NPR was to end in the Rio Grande Valley.

We believe there is a market for NPR’s unique programming in the Valley. It is educational and informative.

As the recent coverage on immigration has shown, the Rio Grande Valley is one of the most important important regions in the country for news. It is heavily Hispanic and patriotic.

It is also a region that is often misunderstood and misreported on. We believe it deserves to have NPR, with NPR explaining the big issues to its citizens and the corporation’s reporters covering the issues that matter to this community.

Help us #savenprrgv. Every penny we raise will go towards bringing NPR back to the Valley.
