KURE - Unity Radio Eloy


KURE envisions a community of listeners who, guided by Eloy bilingual community programming, work together to share information that uplifts family and community life and provides positive pathways to meet life's challenges.  KURE will promote Eloy events, employment opportunities, community groups, available services, and hands-on training for Eloy youth as well as provide an outlet for the creative talents of community members. Entertainment programming will be included, and we hope to have sports coverage, as well.
