A Note from the Executive Director

Dear Monrovia Viewers,

Many other communities across the Southland have recently lost their community channels due to recent changes in the law. Yet KGEM continues to thrive thanks to the community that surrounds it. This can only continue with your help.

We need new members, volunteers and especially sponsorships/donations. We have several different member and sponsorship packages available for both businesses or members of the community. Please contact us to find out the best ways you can ensure KGEM remains a hub of the community. KGEM is our gem to treasure, don’t let its sparkle fade.

Call today at 626-357-4974 or email us at

Thank you,

Lance Mungia
Executive Director
