Giving Voice: Nonprofits on the Radio

These notes were taken on a presentation at the NTEN ’07 Conference by:
* Jake Shapiro – Executive Director of Public Radio Exchange
* Jenny Toomey – Executive Director of Future of Music Coalition
* Chris Guerre – Director of Media Relations at Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts
* Vince Stehle – Surdna Foundation

There was an FCC announcement that FREE (non-commercial) RADIO LICENCES (for the first time in 15 years) are being given to nonprofits for locally-programmed radio. This is necessary to promote localism and local artists. Anyone who is a nonprofit and is in an area where spectrum space is available is invited to apply. You can get more information at: www.getradio.org and http://www.prometheusradio.org/ and see attachment from the Future of Music Coalition for a good breakdown.
