Bard College gets full-power FM license
The Federal Communications Commission awarded Bard College a license for 88.1-FM. The signal will barely overlap with WGXC's coverage area (mostly around Germantown), and will mostly cover Duchess County. Plans are to get under way soon at Bard from a temporary studio planned for campus. To the north, the FCC has denied applications for Hudson Valley Community College for 89.7-FM in Troy and "Media Alliance" (folks associated with The Sanctuary for Media Justice in Troy) for 89.9-FM.
