KCRW's 7th Annual 24-Hour

Radio Race

Coming Soon!

Have you always wanted to make radio but weren't sure where to start? Are you an experienced producer who wants to break free from your daily routine? No matter what your level of expertise, KCRW’s 7th annual Radio Race is calling your name.

This year’s Race begins at 10 a.m. PT August 10 and ends 10 a.m. PT August 11. You’ll have 24 hours to write, record and edit a four-minute nonfiction radio story of your choice.

The winning teams will be awarded cash prizes and their radio stories will air on KCRW. But remember: the Radio Race is more than an overnight competition. It’s an opportunity to produce the most original piece of radio anyone will hear in 2019.
