What Is WFOR?
Our airwaves, our radio. An independent media is the cornerstone of a truly free and just society. Independent, community-based Low Power FM(LPFM)radio stations are a platform to ensure that the diversity of local voices are heard and the public interest is served. However, because of the structure of our country’s media and federal regulations, community based media has been restricted in recent years. That structure is changing, and right now is a vital chance to strengthen the voice of our community. In the coming year, the FCC plans to open the application process for new LPFM stations. We hope to lay the groundwork and advocate for community sourced and community relevant media here in Louisville.
Contribute and Volunteer
While our mission is to “free” the airwaves, doing so is definitely not free. There are a whole host of start-up costs that will be required to realize our dream of true community media in our city. There will be engineering costs, antennas, transmitters, mixing consoles, microphones, headphones, cables and recorders to purchase. To achieve our goal, we need your help and the support of our entire community. WFOR Radio asks you to contribute whatever you can. Funding, time, energy, ideas, we need it all.
