LPFM Watch: 22 More Groups Granted Construction Permits for New Radio Stations

This week, 22 more groups were granted construction permits for new low power FM (LPFM) radio stations. This brings the grand total of granted construction permits from the fall 2013 application window to 1,759. Among the new grantees this week, 12 of the organizations are churches or religious groups and 10 are other non-profits.

In Knoxville, Tennessee, The Neighborhood Center, Appalachian Community Fund, and United Mountain Defense were granted applications and will be sharing the 103.9 FM channel. According to its application, The Neighborhood Center’s programming will “highlight local music, fine and performing arts, and local history and folklore.” The Appalachian Community Fund “provides resources and support to grassroots organizations working to overcome the underlying causes of poverty and injustice” in the region and its programming will be in line with that mission. United Mountain Defense, which  publishes the United Mountain Defender newspaper, plans to air programming related to “environmental justice and local ecological issues.”

The Appalachian Community Fund will broadcast on Wednesdays from 9am until 4:59pm and on Thursdays from 9am until 12:59pm. The Neighborhood Center will broadcast from Thursdays at 1pm until early Wednesday morning (5:59am) and on Wednesdays from 5pm to 1am Thursdays.
