Announcements & Reminders

Power 96 Senior Night!

Graduating Seniors from Albert Lea High School take over the radio station! Talk about school, class memories, and what you plan to do after graduation. Make the show personal for your classmates and community.

Due to COVID-19, we are going to have to switch to a more digital program this year. We will be recording the conversations at a to-be-determined date and time. We will be using the Zoom platform for the interviews. We are looking for a maximum of 8 seniors who are willing to spend an hour sharing their favorite songs, memories, and plans for the future. We look forward to keeping this tradition going for the Class of 2021! The interviews will air on Power 96 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 7.

Click HERE if you are interested in being a part of Power 96 Senior Night. This is a first come first serve event. Spots fill up fast!
