Code of On Air Conduct

Radio Kingston is committed to supporting and celebrating a just, healthy, and vibrant Kingston, operating on principles of mutual respect, collaboration, and civic participation.

Radio helps us rediscover our common story, shared meaning, and renews our connection to our home and to each other. This is a place for radical imagination – a confidence in our collective ability to build, create, and connect. We share a conviction that a more equitable, balanced, and joyful world is possible, and that it will one day emerge as a result of our collective efforts.

With this spirit in mind, the following guidelines are to be observed at all times by the hosts and staff of Radio Kingston when interacting with our community on or off the the air.

Always act with honesty and with integrity.

Be respectful: to the people you talk with and talk about.

Be positive. We all want Kingston to succeed.

Be informed. Know what you’re talking about. Don’t speculate. If you’re unsure, refrain from editorializing until you can educate yourself and speak truthfully.

Be civil. We encourage the civil exchange of ideas and viewpoints. Our goal is to bring people together through understanding different perspectives, not further the divide.

Slander is real. The litigation that follows is real. You can be held accountable for what you say on the air.

Refrain from use of derogatory terms for race, culture, gender, sexuality, class, etc. There is zero tolerance for racial epithets or demeaning language on-air.

Please observe preferred pronouns of colleagues and guests and refrain from consciously misgendering people. If you are unsure of preferred pronouns, please politely ask your guests before broadcast.

If you observe a guest or caller sharing statements that are contrary to the intentions of these guidelines, such as statements that are not based on facts or comments that are racially or culturally insensitive, we have an expectation that hosts will handle the situation in the moment.

All of  these guidelines are expected to be communicated to  guests before each broadcast, as hosts  and  guest(s) are expected to abide by each of them. Serious or repeated violations of these guidelines may result in corrective action, up to and including suspension or termination of an individual or an entire program.
