KSFP is a low-power community radio station, launched in August 2019, offering a mix of original local and national talk radio, including news, public affairs and storytelling programming.

KSFP broadcasts on 102.5 FM from Sutro Tower, between 4am and 10am and between 4pm and 10pm, seven days a week. At other times, you can hear KXSF, another station operated on the same frequency by the community radio of San Francisco, specializing in independently produced music and cultural programming.
