We are building a better, more democratic media one new radio station at a time.
In 2013, we helped hundreds of community groups and nonprofits nationwide apply for a one-time chance to build a brand new community radio station. Now, with your help, we are making sure that these new voices get on the air.
Who is building new stations?
Over then next several years, more than 2000 new non-commercial radio stations will go on the air in the US. These new non-commercial stations feature diverse voices and views: broadcasting independent local news, local music and arts, and compelling programming that is absent from the profit-driven airplay of corporate media.
Radio is easy to produce and basically free to use. While the Internet gets attention as a democratizing force, far more people in the US listen to AM and FM radio every week than have access to broadband Internet.
What role will you play in getting them on the air?
Prometheus is on the ground in communities across the country, working with grassroots groups who want to use the media to create a more democratic society. Your financial support helps us build a better media.
