Valley Focus


Valley Focus is broadcast every Sunday morning from 6 a.m. – 7 a.m. and is hosted by Valerie More. The show focuses on how Phoenicians can give back to their community, live a healthier, more informed lifestyle, and offers updates on community news and events. Past programs have included interviews with Catholic Charities on pregnancy and adoption and interviews with PeppedUp! on how to help kids with cancer have fun. Valley Focus is one of the many ways KSLX is committed to providing listeners with opportunities that benefit the community they live in.
