Low Power FM Stations
Brandy Doyle, Policy Director, Prometheus Radio Project
Vanessa Graber, Community Radio Director, Prometheus Radio Project
Guest Host: Craig Cohen
Throughout the week here on The Afternoon Magazine, we have been speaking with attendees of the 2012 Grassroots Radio Conference, which begins today at The Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center. The conference offers an opportunity for community radio stations to gather and discuss a variety of issues. WILL is a media partner for the conference. Among the topics that will be discussed in the coming days – low power FM stations. Many of the folks there come from such stations; others may be seeking to start their own radio station. One of the organizations working to create a network of such low power community radio stations is the Prometheus Radio Project. Two of the project’s members – Brandy Doyle and Vanessa Graber, join us.
