Special Programming Features
Real House-Pets of the Palouse
Every week, Tara Weimer, Director of the Humane Society of the Palouse, comes into the ZFun studio with a dog or cat from the local no-kill shelter. The publicity and buzz that follows the interviews has typically resulted in the pet being adopted with an almost 100% success rate.
Bear Facts Feature
Every morning ZFun airs a special announcement produced by Moscow High School students to be heard by their classmates. This fun feature lets kids get involved in radio and keeps the content relevant to what’s going on at their school. The 30-second feature airs every day at 7:50 a.m. during the school year.
Officer Newbill Safety Fair, City of Moscow
This annual event works to educate both parents and children about safety and health in Moscow, Idaho, and across the Palouse. It was introduced to the community in 2005, and renamed the Officer Newbill Kids Safety Fair when one of our community police officers lost his life in the line of duty, along with a local church sexton.
Pullman Stream Cleanup
The 15th annual Pullman Stream Clean Up aims to clean trash and debris from Pullman streams, while also teaching attendees the importance of proper waste disposal. Organizers asked ZFun to help promote the event and volunteer to help in the cleanup.
Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive
Coming to class fully prepared can make the difference between success and failure. To help give all K-12 students the same chance to succeed, Pullman Kiwanis Club teams with local businesses for an end-of-summer school supply drive. ZFun hosts interviews each year to promote it along with commercials in addition to a 2-hour LIVE broadcast during the event.
Moscow Light Up the Night Holiday Parade
The first Wednesday in December for Moscow means the annual Light up the Night holiday parade. Thousands of locals and students alike line Main Street for the parade, which usually has 20 to 30 floats. ZFun 106 emcees the whole shebang.
Palouse Cares Food Drive
Palouse Cares is the largest single-day food drive on the Palouse. Our group of stations support the event with cause-marketing, as well as other media pieces that we design and place. Local and regional businesses that want to participate are able to do so through this cause-marketing campaign.
