What's Radio Free Roanoke?
Radio Free Roanoke is a grassroots organization formed to provide local media access and programming to the Roanoke community by starting a Low Power FM (LPFM) nonprofit community radio station.
How're you going to make that happen?
We began our planning and incorporated in May of 2013 as a Virginia non-stock (non-profit) corporation and we are working toward 501(c3) status with the IRS. We received our construction permit from the FCC on March 26th of 2015. Our next task will be to do fundraising in order to purchase the necessary equipment to begin transmitting. We have 18 months to reach this goal but expect to get there much sooner than that! Thanks to all who have helped and supported us in achieving this first major step!
