KQED Radio, in collaboration with public radio stations throughout California, launched The California Report, a statewide radio news program, on October 2, 1995. Distributed by satellite from the KQED Radio studios in San Francisco, The California Report provides daily coverage of issues, trends, and public policy decisions affecting California and its diverse population. It is carried by more than 30 public radio stations from Arcata to San Diego. Many local station reporters are regular contributors to the program.

The daily morning edition of The California Report, a 9-minute program, airs on KQED 88.5FM Monday through Friday at 5:50am, 6:50am and 8:50am. The Friday afternoon edition, a half-hour magazine, airs on KQED 88.5FM at 4:30pm, 6:30pm and 11:00pm, and brings you in-depth analysis of the week's top news stories, sound-rich radio excursions and commentaries from voices around the state.

The Sacramento bureau focuses on the work of state government, from the governor to the Legislature and beyond. The bureau's coverage seeks to find both the larger contexts of governance and policy, and the smaller important issues often overlooked in the world of daily news. The bureau also serves as the northernmost bureau for the program, allowing coverage of statewide issues from the Oregon border southward.


Los Angeles
The L.A. Bureau is located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, in the offices of American Public Media/Marketplace Productions. The bureau chief covers stories primarily in Los Angeles County, however, but also reports from Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The L.A. bureau produces stories on a wide range of issues, including: arts and entertainment, business, health care, homeland security, politics, prisons, race and ethnicity.

Central Valley
The Central Valley bureau covers the heartland, with a focus on agriculture and rural issues. The Central Valley is also the fastest growing region of the state -- bringing challenges of growth and urbanization. The bureau produces stories on health care, immigration and the environment, including tales from some of the state's most famous national parks -- Yosemite and Sequoia/King's Canyon.
