The Aframsouth Community Radio project
During the month of March, 2015, Aframsouth was awarded an FCC Construction Permit to build a LOW FM Broadcast station in Montgomery, Alabama. As a result of the Local Community Radio Act of 2011 noncommercial community radio stations were recently licensed during the past year to nonprofit community organizations throughout the country. With the assistance of Color of Change and the Prometheus Radio Project, Aframsouth was successful in gaining access to the airways.
We expect to begin broadcasting community radio programs during the summer of 2016. A steering committee of community organization representatives and volunteers dedicated to the success of community radio are presently in the process of planning and organizing our new community radio station.
More to come……
