XRAY puts a microphone to the best and most distinctive of Portland. We strive to create a culturally relevant center for ideas, music and creativity in service of a more open media and a more just community.
Bottom Line for Portland
XRAY provides a purpose-driven alternative to mainstream media. Last year, we amplified the voices of 150 Portlanders each week, played music from thousands of independent artists not played on Top 40 radio, promoted the work of over 100 local nonprofits, and aired audio broadcasts from dozens of community events.
“XRAY has a kind of success that I think is unique and valuable beyond measure. You help people find their voice. Thank you for helping me rediscover mine.” —Volunteer host on XRAY in the Morning
