Local Love is a show that focuses its efforts on interviewing local businesses, independent creators, and non-profit organizations. In a world where multi-million dollar businesses have a grasp on consumer markets, Local Love promotes the listeners to look inwards at their own communities for local resources and services instead of opting for chain companies. Due to COVID regulations affecting many businesses, Local Love is focusing its efforts on interviewing those who are struggling to stay afloat or pose as excellent support to impacted or marginalized communities.

Meet the Host
Meet 'Kenzie the talk show host for KUCI's Local Love. Kenzie is pursuing a career in the humanities through film and media at UCI. Kenzie's interest blossomed when they discovered the no-waste shop, No Tox Life. Shopping here inspired Kenzie to continue to look inwards at their own community for more low-waste resources. After volunteering and training at KUCI, Kenzie found that starting the show Local Love would be a wonderful opportunity to expose other community members to these local businesses and creators that otherwise might be overlooked. Local Love also posed as an excellent challenge to Kenzie to further their understanding of the resources around them, thus learning alongside the listeners.
