KZAX 94.9 FM is Bellingham’s newest community radio station. A project of Make.Shift,KZAX exists to promote local and underrepresented voices on the FM airwaves. KZAX aspires to showcase and highlight local arts, culture, dialog and activism.

The station was born when Make.Shift secured a license from the FCC in 2014 to create a new low-power FM station (LPFM) — a community-based, non-commercial radio station operating at 100 watts or less and reaching a radius of 3 to 7 miles. KZAX is expected to be broadcasting by July 25,2016
