From our friends at Prometheus Radio Project:
Are you ready to change the media landscape in this country? Do you want to start a radio station or know some groups who might? If so, you can help spread the word about community radio! As early as next year, there will be a unique opportunity to apply for thousands of new Low Power FM (LPFM) community radio licenses. These non-commercial stations have the potential to broadcast local news, independent music and arts, and other diverse programming not heard on commercial radio.
Radio Summer is an outreach effort for independent media lovers nationwide to lead an event, host a volunteer, hit the road, and spread the word about this amazing opportunity. There are plenty of ways to participate in Radio Summer. Prometheus Radio Project and the People Powered Radio Coalition will provide you with support, including materials, trainings, live webinars, and additional tools to spread the word. Join the Radio Summer team and help amplify community voices across the US!
Once you’ve let us know how you want to participate by filling out the form linked above, we’ll be in touch.
Also, check out the great resources and tools we have compiled on the Radio Summer website, and share it widely through Facebook and other social networks!
Please send Jeff, the Radio Summer coordinator, any questions at jrousset [at] prometheusradio [dot] org.
Thanks! See you this summer!
