KCRW has embarked on its first major capital campaign in its 75-year history to construct and equip a custom-designed Media Center and expand programming across multiple platforms – on-air, online, and in-person.  The 35,000-square-foot facility will be located on Santa Monica College’s Academy of Entertainment and Technology (AET) campus and provide KCRW with its first permanent home.  The new Media Center will triple KCRW’s studio production space, incorporate state-of-the-art broadcast and digital equipment and serve as a multipurpose venue.  By 2017, KCRW expects its radio listeners to increase from 500,000 to over 625,000, its web traffic to increase by 18% to over 688,000 monthly visitors, and its social media audience to increase by two-thirds to 2.5 million.  The Foundation’s grant will support equipment and program expansion.
