Radio Project Update
Here is a progress update from Marilyn Welker:
102.1 FM - Local Power Community Radio Is Happening!
With support from so many of you for assistance and offers to help, willingness to produce programming, and ongoing encouragement and support, we anticipate being on air by late April.
WHAT: WCRS, 102.1 FM, the voice of Simply Living
WCRX, 102.1 FM, the voice of Bexley Public Radio Foundation, is currently on air from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. Mon. through Fri., rebroadcasting simultaneously on 98.3 FM.
WCRC, 102.1 FM, the voice of Community Refugee & Immigration Services, will also begin broadcasting within the next few months.
We anticipate rebroadcast support from 98.3 FM, owned and operated by the Columbus Institute for Contemporary Journalism.
Our station (transmitter w/ antenna and equipment) is built, thanks to extraordinary effort by Eugene Beer!
Short term: Finalize agreements with our broadcast partners. Finalize music licenses and program permissions. Comply with FCC requirements. Produce playlists and broadcast!
Longer term: Write business plan. Build studio. Develop capacities to produce our own local programming. Build community partnerships and larger constituency to support community radio.
Your Simply Living Radio Steering Committee: Eugene Beer, Jenny Floch, Rich James, Jim Kammerud, Kris Keller, Bruce Reed and Marilyn Welker, with valued long distance support from Ken Kraska.
The excitement is growing--Columbus is the largest U.S. city to have a low power community radio station. Your station--your voice for what matters!
