WGXC-90.7 FM

WGXC Founding Membership campaign

Jan 14, 2010 9:18 pm
WGXC volunteers are working hard to launch a 3,300-watt community radio station. More than 78,000 people throughout Greene and Columbia counties will be able to receive the signal on 90.7-FM. WGXC received its license from the FCC and a grant from the US Commerce Dept that will cover 50 percent of our equipment needs. We now need to raise matching funds in order to get on the air, $71,000 by March 31.

So far, WGXC has raised $14,077, so we still need $56,923. By March 31.

So far, WGXC has raised $3,122 from benefit events; $2,670 for corporate support; $5,135 from Foundation/Organization Support; and $3,150 from Individual Memberships.

Buy some watts and help bring community radio to Greene and Columbia counties.

We need folks to step up now and create a local community station. Become a Founding Member and get WGXC on the air and community radio will be beaming into your radio by the end of the year. We are very close to making a giant difference in the community, airing live town meetings, and giving citizens a voice with their local government officials. We are very close to bringing media training to local youth, who will then report on what is going on in the schools for WGXC. We are very close to airing live performances, festivals, and events on WGXC, and being a central information source for local farmers, artists, history buffs, and fans of interesting music. Together we can get that all and more on WGXC if you become a Founding Member.
