Testimonials

The California Capital Network has filled a critical hole in KCLU's coverage for our listeners. We had the outstanding international and national coverage of NPR, and our own local coverage of California's South Coast, but struggled to provide comprehensive coverage of Sacramento. With the state budget crisis, California's role in environmentalism, and of course a high-profile governor, CCN has filled that important gap with timely, well reported coverage featuring lots of excellent sound.

Thanks to CCN, we've even added three additional daily newscasts, bringing our total to 12 a day.

We now clobber everyone else in our market, even our commercial competitors, with our state coverage, thanks to CCN!

-Lance Orozco, News Director, KCLU


Capital Public Radio fills a need and a niche for KPBS. We not only get Sacramento coverage of issues and stories with statewide significance, but we also get coverage of stories that show how state politics works...or doesn’t.

It’s a valuable service for us...five days a week, and sometimes six.

Moreover, it helps to have surrogate eyes and ears observing state government on behalf of the people of San Diego and Imperial Counties. The CPR Sacramento Bureau has been very responsive to our requests for customized reports.

We’ve been a subscriber to the service for many years, and the content and quality has been a tremendous benefit to our newsroom at Jefferson Public Radio. The sheer size of California, as well as the size of its government, makes it very challenging to cover adequately, especially from far away Ashland, Oregon. Your staff has always been well-educated about the issues, dedicated to clear and concise writing, and able to provide very timely reports on a daily basis. Both the daily spot pieces and the frequent features have been put to good use on our daily newsmagazine, The Jefferson Daily, and during our 10-minute morning newscast.
