2020 General Election Live Coverage

Crews of KTQA-LP, RadioTacoma, and VT Radio Universal collaborated in the most socially-distanced way possible to bring local perspective and coverage of the general election on the afternoon and evening of November 3rd, 2020. Listen to community members from a variety of walks of life (and languages!) reflect and react to this historic moment.

2020 Primary Election Live Coverage

Becky Friedman of KTQA and Louisa Beal of KTAH embark on a collaborative remote simulcast to bring coverage and commentary of the August 4, 2020 primary election to listeners in Tacoma, Pierce County, and Washington State. Throughout the night, the crew works hard to bring both veteran and new political voices to the airwaves.

2018 Midterm Election Live Coverage

On the evening of election day, KTQA along with sibling station Radio Tacoma covered the 2018 midterm election for local listeners. We were live at the election party for Tacoma Creates held at the Swiss. This was an experiment for both stations as it was one of our first live events, our first remote event, and the first time KTQA had participated in the local community.
