From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

KUFW (90.5 FM, La Campesina 90.5 FM) is an American non-commercial educational radio station licensed to serve the community of Woodlake in Tulare County, California. The station is operated by Farmworker Educational Radio Network, Inc., and its broadcast license is held by the Cesar Chavez Foundation. Signing on in May 1983, KUFW became the first radio station in the United States "dedicated to the needs of farmworkers".[1][2]


KUFW broadcasts a Regional Mexican music and educational programming format branded as "La Campesina 90.5 FM" to the farmworkers of the Visalia metropolitan area as part of the Radio Campesina Network.[3][1][4] ("Campesina" is a Spanish word meaning "peasant" or "farmworker".) Anthony Chavez, president of Farmworker Educational Radio Network, Inc., is the youngest son of American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist César Chávez.[5]


In July 1980, the United Farm Workers union, working through a subsidiary named Farmworkers Communications, Inc., applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station.[2] The FCC granted this permit on August 31, 1981, with a scheduled expiration date of August 31, 1982.[6] The new station was assigned call sign "KUFW" on November 30, 1981.[7] After multiple extensions, construction and testing were completed in May 1983 and KUFW began broadcasting under program test authority.[1][4] The station was granted its broadcast license on June 28, 1984.[8]

The station was taken temporarily off the air in mid-April 1990 by a fire that gutted the interior of the broadcast facility and destroyed the station's control room. While repairs were being made, broadcasting resumed from one of the station's remote broadcast vans parked at the site of the fire-ravaged facility.[9]

In August 1995, Farmworkers Communications, Inc., filed an application with the FCC to transfer the KUFW broadcast license to National Farm Workers Service Center, Inc. The FCC approved the move on December 13, 1995, and the transaction was formally consummated on December 14, 1995.[10]

On September 2, 2011, lawyers representing radio stations KUFW and KNAI (Phoenix, Arizona) notified the FCC that license holder National Farm Workers Service Center, Inc., had legally changed its name to the "César Chávez Foundation" on June 30, 2010.[11]
