New LPFM stations for Madison

Change is in the air. We are in the middle of an FCC window, which may not come again, for new low power FM radio station license applications. This window, which ends Nov. 14, is also for major modification applications from existing LPFM stations. The FCC will answer questions about these applications during a live webinar which starts online at noon Madison time on Thursday Oct. 24. Go to http://www.fcc.gov/live to listen in, and see http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2013/db1018/DA-1... for details. The possible outcome of all this is 2 or 3 new LPFM stations in Madison, which may include separate stations for CityWIDE and SoulWIDE, the 2 partners that have shared the air at 99.1 FM for the last 5 years. If you think you might like to get involved with one of these stations, drop us an email at city@widelp.org.
