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 traditional media formats in a place where three large corporations own the majority of the media available for us to consume. We don’t use an algorithm to tell you what you already like–your smartphone can do that just fine. We bring together a community of curators who can introduce you to stuff worth loving. Including great stuff produced right in your hometown. 


We believe that radio is yours. Help us cement the future of independent community-focused media as a lasting institution in Portland–because Portland deserves media as fiercely independent as its people.


“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 Morning News Host

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

XRAY.FM is committed to fostering, cultivating, preserving, and amplifying a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion that reflects and highlights the community we represent. We recognize that marginalized identities are underrepresented in the radio, broadcast, and audio/podcast industries; we strive to correct this inequity by prioritizing participation from BIPOC, women, and LGBTQ+ artists in our programs with a goal of amplifying the voices that corporate consolidation of media has shut out. 


We’ve put our values into action through teach-ins highlighting women & femmes + Black voices, developing publicly accessible media education and access programs like our audio gear and training library, providing fundamental resources to launch The Numberz KNUM 96.7 (The Black Music Experience for Black Portland), and consistently handing the microphone to marginalized groups through PSAs, programs, news, music, and discussion.
