Get on the Air! Building community radio stations for social change
Wednesday, May 29, 8 - 9pm EST - Register Now for Free
Thanks to passage of the Local Community Radio Act, nonprofits, labor unions, and community groups will have a one-time chance to apply for free FM radio licenses in cities and towns across the country on October 15, 2013! What's community radio? How could it support our organization's work? How can this build our capacity? Can we play awesome local artists without any commercials? If you asked any of these questions then this could be for you!
This hour-long webinar will teach you all the basics to start or support a new community radio station. We'll cover a bit of the history, what Low Power FM is and why it matters, nuts and bolts of the application process, and ways to build capacity for this project. There will be time for questions and answers. This is the starting point to get on the air!
