Reclaim the Radio Airwaves! Low Power Legislation in the works...

Tagged:  •    •  

From our ACME partner colleagues at Prometheus Radio Project -

Local low-power community radio is one of the cornerstones of a vibrant and democratic 21st century media culture. We've started our own (legally licensed) station - WMRW at 95.1 fm - here in Vermont's Mad River Valley.

But legislation expanding LPFM's reach and status is essential.

Get involved, and support Prometheus! If you haven't yet met Hannah (a firecracker) and Pete Tridesh (the same) - make sure you look them up on the dial or at a media conference near you.

Happy Monday,

President’s Address

Happy new year to all! What a fabulous and productive fall for ACME. Three free new multimedia education resources for our members, national Summit planning underway, our new Orwell Project, an ongoing successful e-membership drive, and the launch of our newest ACMEBoston chapter!

And, after more than a year of discussion with four different IRS representatives, ACME is now an independent 501c3, so all of your donations are tax-deductible. (Special thanks to ACME Vice-President Bob McCannon for his perseverance in making this happen.)
