Providence Community Radio — On The Air

Exciting news, radio fans, ProComRad is on the air. Tune in to 101.1 FM on your radio dial. From their Facebook page,

Providence Community Radio, a non-commercial local low power FM broadcaster, is proud to announce we’re working with partner organizations BSR and AS220 to develop Providence’s newest radio station: 101.1FM! We’re building facilities and developing original programming that will run on 101.1. Airtime on the signal will be shared between all three organizations.

The low power FM (LPFM) radio service was created by the FCC in January of 2000.

LPFM stations are authorized for noncommercial educational broadcasting only (no commercial operation) and operate with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 100 watts (0.1 kilowatts) or less . . . LPFM stations are available to noncommercial educational entities and public safety and transportation organizations, but are not available to individuals or for commercial operations. Current broadcast licensees with interests in other media (broadcast or newspapers) are not eligible to obtain LPFM stations.

Some of the time on 101.1FM will provide continuity to Brown Broadcasting’s programming, including a full day of WBRU 360 every Sunday.
