Christmas Stocking Fund
After a slow start, the 2017 Christmas Stocking Fund campaign steadily built momentum with Hereford and Deaf Smith County residents, organizations and businesses supporting the homegrown holiday charity to the tune of $29,857.50. That is the second highest one year campaign total in CSF history and only ranks behind the 2013 campaign that raised $52,180, largely on the strength of a major gift from the Joe Mandina Estate.
KPAN Radio was the news media sponsor of
the project for the fourth year in 2017, and FirstBank Southwest again
partnered as the collection point for donations.

Welcome to an on-line visit to the Texas Panhandle, where the people are genuine, the ground meets the sky in an unbroken line and they call the wind Mariah.....Carey. Or on some days there are other names for the wind. Where cows outnumber people 10 to 1. Where malcontents and ne'er-do-wells are still allowed daily access to loaded sidearms and live microphones. Where you can still be home on the range. Where the land is flat and the deck is stacked and the ladies.....are angels. Where money talks and men are real men and the livestock are.....real nervous.

When the little radio station went on the air in 1948, the army barracks you see at the left was home to a simple studio and a handful of folks who were excited about bringing the latest technology to Hereford. Now, with the fourth generation of the Formby family clicking keyboards to put KPAN on the Internet, we are still excited about the latest technology to bring radio's one-to-one communication to you, our on-line listener. KPAN still has much of the original vision of 1948, a full-service radio station for a community, daily providing music, sports, advertising, journalism, weather, ag info, opinion, markets and fun for Hereford -- and now for you, wherever you choose to log on.
