FCC GRANTS LPFM RADIO STATION PERMIT TO ANZA NON-PROFIT

ANZA, CA – On April 29, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted the rural community of Anza, California an historic opportunity to have its own community radio station.   The local nonprofit, Anza Civic Improvement League (ACIL) was issued a permit to build a low-power FM (LPFM) radio station following a, once in a generation, FCC application process. The permit grants 18 months to set up the equipment and studio necessary to be “on the air” broadcasting to those within approximately 10-mile of the tower location just north of the Anza Village. The studio will be located in the Anza Village and open to the public.

As a community based, noncommercial radio station, the programming will focus on education, entertainment, and issues important to the local community, including emergency broadcasting. However, the exact nature of the radio programs will depend on the creative genius of those in the community who volunteer to produce them.  The steering committee invites any individual or community organization interested in local radio broadcasting to get in on the ground level of this historic and exciting new community resource.

This the first time in 13 years and likely the last time ever that the FCC will issue new LPFM permits.  Plans to apply to the FCC for this permit began in July of 2013. Members of the Mountain Communities of Resilience (M-COR), the ACIL and other local residents met for four months to prepare the submission for the short nationwide FCC application window last winter.  The ACIL agreed to be the qualified non-profit organization to own the license but a new nonprofit, Anza Community Broadcasting, will be formed to handle fundraising and station management.  Licensing information is publicly available online at http://bit.ly/1itugxv
