"KCLU 8AM News With Willa Sandmeyer"


This is KCLU's 8 AM morning newscast for September 23, 2022 with Willa Sandmeyer

This is KCLU's 8 a.m. morning newscast for September 23, the RTNA's Designated News Day.

KCLU is the NPR radio station for Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, on the coast of California. We are the next market west of Los Angeles, but we compete with Los Angeles stations with signals overlapping into our market.

So, our newscasts are focused on being hyperlocal, and doing what any good radio station should do, which is to keep the local community involved.

We do ten newscasts every weekday, at least one long-form NPR-style news storiy a day, plus extensive live coverage of things like brush fires and floods (which unfortunately are frequent in our region.) We have two full-time news people, and two part-time anchors.
