Inland Empire Radio Station KCAA Sends Broadcast Signal to Your Phone

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- San Bernardino radio station KCAA 1050-AM is now available to listeners via telephone.  No internet connection is necessary. You can listen to the station’s broadcast by simply dialing (832) 999-1050 on your phone! Fred Lundgren, KCCA owner, used this announcement to push his station’s slogan saying, “This is another tool that helps KCAA’s goal to “Leave No Listener Behind”!

KCAA is an affiliate of NBC featuring a Talk Format that includes national as well as local programming.  Westside Story News produces a weekly program on KCAA titled “EMPIRE TALKS BACK” (ETB) that is hosted by Westside Story Publisher, Wallace J. Allen.

“This is great news,” said Allen. “Being able to listen to ‘ETB’ directly by calling on the phone will make hearing the program easy for people who are outside of the broadcast signal. That is good for the listeners and for advertisers!”

ETB is broadcast on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. You can now hear the program several ways: on the radio at 1050-AM on the dial, on your phone, and on the internet via www.kcaaradio.com where the program streams live video and where pod-casts are archived.

Friday, May 9: ‘The American Nurse’ Comes to San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO, CA – In honor of Nurses Week, the Global Nursing Program will be showing the new film “The American Nurse” in the ASU Fox Theater in San Bernardino on Friday, May 9th at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door or online at www.gNp193.com. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The American Nurse is a heart-warming documentary that gives a voice to nurses who are on the front lines of the biggest issues facing America, such as aging, war, poverty, prisons through the work and lives of five nurses. It is an examination of real people that will change how we think about nurses and how we wrestle with the challenges of healing America. The American Nurse is an important contribution to America’s ongoing conversation about what it means to care.

Professionals that see the documentary can earn 1.5 CE credits through an arrangement with www.nurse.com. A portion of the proceeds from The American Nurse Project have been earmarked to a new scholarship program under the auspices of the American Nurses Foundation.

The historic ASU Fox Theater was originally opened in 1929 and was the site for the West Coast premiere of the original “King Kong” film in 1933. It is located at 374 West Court Street in downtown San Bernardino, just a block from City Hall across the street from the Bank of America.
