Open Air is a place for people to tell their story, to provide the listener an opportunity to ‘walk’ in another’s shoes. Offering fresh new perspectives, content listeners can relate to; people talking about their own lives, keeping it real and current. Whether we’re talking with our next door neighbor, a civil rights activist, a platinum recording artist or a nationally recognized personal trainer – whether you’ve walked the red carpet or down a dirt road – everyone has a story. Open Air is a place for people to tell their story; to make people think and to make people laugh!

Open Air entered the air waves in 2008 on 88.9FM KPOV, Bend, OR.
