OCT’s new series about Oceanside's thriving Arts & Culture scene is funded, in part, by the City of Oceanside’s Arts Commission. One program covered in the series includes the Art Walk in Downtown Oceanside. This program features interviews with artists, visitors, and Art Walk creators, and showcases this cultural gem that takes place every month in Oceanside. This program was Produced and Edited by Angela Miranda. Watch now!

There he received, on behalf of KOCT, a Hometown Media Award for KOCT’s “18th Annual Inter-Tribal Powwow”. The Hometown Media Awards recognize the best community media programming of 2014, and include student, independent producer, and access center professional categories.

Thanks to Promise Yee with The Coast News for an article about two large grants that our Oceanside Public Library received. KOCT hopes to work with the Historical Society and the Library to tell the Latino story in Oceanside. KOCT has an archive of programs and interviews with Latino residents about our community and their history in Oceanside. We hope with this grant that KOCT can produce additional historical programs. If you know a business or individual who would like to help Underwrite these programs and contribute to Oceanside’s historical legacy please have them contact Tom Reeser at KOCT- 760-722-4433.
