KGHR is qualified to receive support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting through a Community Service Grant. As a condition of that grant, KGHR prepares an annual audit which you can download below including other public records.
As the oldest Navajo licensed noncommercial station, KGHR is committed to promoting and preserving the Navajo culture through programming and community service. Greyhills Academy High School, our licensee, a grant school under the direction and management of the Bureau of Indian Education, provides a comprehensive education enriched with the Navajo/Dine’ culture. As a public service of Greyhills Academy, KGHR seeks to extend the reach of these unique programs to serve the community of Tuba City, Arizona and the Navajo Nation.
As such, a priority in recruiting staff and volunteers is a demonstrated interest, knowledge and sensitivity to the culture of the Dine’. Fluency in Navajo and English is a plus.
KGHR is presently in a rebuilding phase, having incurred significant damage to its transmitter in 2011 and a subsequent reduction in staff. As the station rebuilds, these are the priorities:
