We are a community media outlet that was founded by radio professionals, retirees, instructors, students and alumni who wholeheartedly believe that local community content on local airwaves is a necessity for a healthy and thriving community. We are called The Voice of San Joaquin and The Voice of Stockton, because we share local perspectives on local news, sports, arts, music, entertainment, and community information and resources to all in our community, from members of our community. We are a 501.c.3 nonprofit organization that produces content for and supports local community radio stations and broadcasts locally and globally on multiple outlets in multiple formats.
“The Voice of San Joaquin” (which includes “The Voice of Stockton”) produces original content unique to our area. Our mission is to uplift and improve our community, focused on positive communication, involvement, inclusion, development, and sustainability.
We are currently airing content on KBCC 89.5 FM Tracy, California, and online at TVoSJ.org and TheVoiceofStockton.org, reaching thousands of viewers and listeners each week, via Facebook Live @tvosj, YouTube Livestream, and the Simple Radio app for smartphones and devices. Our listening audience grows each week, currently up by more than 3,000% over the past two years, with over 150,000 people reached just on Facebook in the last month. No other outlets can provide citywide and worldwide coverage in such a timely and cost effective way that local nonprofits, organizations, institutions, businesses, and individuals can utilize to get their message distributed. We are making sure that our station can be sustained locally by being community produced and community funded. Our programming is community produced from a variety of sources (including other media outlets), community members, and even youth and student groups. We proved that it was possible when we built Delta College’s radio station 5 years ago, and we are determined to support community radio by broadcasting informative, educational, entertaining, and essential local programming, around the clock, from the most diverse perspectives that San Joaquin County has ever seen, providing local listeners with programming they just can’t find anywhere else on the dial.
