LPFM Watch: 19 New Low-Power FM Stations Licensed

No new low-power FM construction permits have been issues yet so far in 2016. No applications have been dismissed, either. As I mentioned last week, there are only about 100 applications left to be processed by the FCC, so it’s likely we will see most, if not all, of these dealt with by year’s end.

However, the Commission has been busy granting licenses since the new year began. 19 new LPFM stations have become fully licensed in the last two weeks:

  • WYPW-LP Brandon, FL
  • WMKP-LP Oakwood, GA
  • WMBT-LP Gainesville, FL
  • WSVP-LP Springvale, ME
  • WLXY-LP Chelsea, AL
  • WMRW-LP Warren, VT
  • WBWT-LP Greenville, SC
  • WWXR-LP Norcross, GA
  • KIYQ-LP Las Vegas, NV
  • KDIV-LP Fayetteville, AR
  • KXMJ-LP Marysville, CA
  • WCFT-LP Dover, NJ
  • WJVE-LP Debary, FL
  • WVLP-LP Valparaiso, IN
  • WEPL-LP Rochester, NY
  • WXBJ-LP Salisbury, MA
  • KSRB-LP Corpus Christi, TX
  • KSWZ-LP St. George, KS
  • WYOB-LP Oak Bluffs, MA

Finally, here are some recent LPFM stations in the news:

  • The Valdosta Daily Times reports on a station to be operated by the Snake Nation Press literary publisher in Valdosta, GA.
  • The Killeen Independent School District in Texas plans to launch KMYB, featuring, “ student-¬≠hosted programs, KISD sports broadcasts and various shows highlighting fine arts productions throughout the district.” That’s according to the Kileen DailyHerald.
  • iBerkshires reports that the Northern Berkshires Community Television Corp. will launch WMNB-LP in February, operating alongside the organization’s public access television station.
  • WAYO-FM in Greece, NY went on the air January 4 and just completed a successful Kickstarter campaign, per a report in the Fairport-East Rochester Post.
