Power 88 KCEP
We engage, inform, and entertain our audience by providing a distinctive and thoughtful mix of news, public affairs, and music programming.
The vision of KCEP is to be the nucleus of the community by providing knowledge through dynamic programming, creating connections through effective partnerships, and actively engaging the community with a vital public radio presence.
Established in 1972, KCEP Power 88 is a public radio station serving the Southern Nevada community. For more than 45 years, KCEP has prospered thanks to the dedication and perseverance of a passionate community. KCEP, also known as “The People’s Station,” has a long history in the Las Vegas community, dating back to its humble beginnings at Nucleus Plaza (formerly the Golden West Shopping Center) in 1972 with just 10 watts. To compare, we are now 10,000 watts!
KCEP’s station operations and administrative offices are located at the Historic Westside School, a Historic Landmark on the National Registry. EOB manages KCEP and is also found in the historical school.
As well as being a community service of EOB, KCEP-FM also provides an eclectic blend of R&B, old school, hip hop, jazz, blues, gospel, reggae, and locally produced public affairs/cultural programs.
Throughout the Las Vegas valley, the station broadcasts on its frequency of 88.1 FM and throughout the world, with live on-air streaming on our new app. Download from your app store by searching Power 88 Las Vegas or logging onto www.power88lv.com or on tuneinradio.com.
