Friends of Community Radio files application for LPFM radio license

Here’s the press release from Friends of Community Radio:

It is our pleasure to announce that Friends of Community Radio, the parent organization of Asheville Free Media, has applied for a Low-Power FM (LPFM) frequency!

Since the early months of 2009, volunteers have met and worked to create a platform for local voices, and we now feature 41 weekly, locally-produced programs. The support of our community, underwriters, and listeners have made this possible, and we look forward to the possibility of expanding our service.

Stay tuned for more news about Asheville Free Media as we take our next steps to getting on the airwaves in Asheville!

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
