Support community radio TODAY

by jc | Events,News

We have only a few months left to raise the initial $10,000 it will take to move up the dial to 100.1FM with a 24/7 schedule. Please consider supporting community radio TODAY. No amount it too small. Thanks!

CLICK HERE TO HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!

Community radio is a vital local media lifeline in many communities.  Gainesville is no exception. WGOT-LP began broadcasting on 94.7FM in January of 2008 as a broadcast media service of the Civic Media Center and has continued to provide a cornucopia of local music, news, and public affairs programming to the Gainesville community.  This unique programming is augmented my regional and national programs via the Pacifica Radio Network.

 

Now, WGOT-LP stands at a crossroads: we can  continue to keep our humble operation in its current configuration as a shared station with two local churches, or expand to our own frequency at 100.1FM.  To do this, we need YOUR help, both financial and otherwise. Finances are the key, with funds to cover our performance rights (royalty) licenses as well as our annual dues to continue our affiliation with the Pacifica Radio Network, which brings you fine programs like Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman and many others.

 

No donation for YOUR community radio station is too big or too small. By making our goal, we not only will be able to obtain the equipment that will allow us to broadcast from a dedicated spot on the dial from a physical studio space, but also regain our online streaming signal, which we lost last Fall because of financial and legal complications.

 

WGOT is on the cusp of HUGE potential growth. Follow us on Facebook for even further updates. Help be a part of it!
