We will begin broadcasting over the Internet beginning in February of 2014 before we erect our radio tower.
In order to comply with our FCC license, we will be hosting locally generated content for a minimum of 8 hours each broadcast day. Our main studio will also be open to the public for the production and airing of community based programming local to our rural area in the southwest Appalachian region of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Locally originated programming will include our local and national news broadcasts, live DJ music slots, local talk shows hosted by our organization's founders, local bands and more.
For a maximum of 16 hours a day we can include programming that is generated anywhere in the United States. If you are interested in hosting your very own radio show on our station, we will be able to work with you to bring in your program live from any remote location or even recorded and uploaded to our station for your assigned time slot. Hosts must agree to refrain from airing any commercial advertisements and shows set to air between 6:00 AM and 10:00 PM (Eastern Time) are prohibited from using any profanity or sexually explicit content.
The FCC does restrict us from being able to air traditional commercial radio announcements on our over-the-air signal, but does allow for underwritten sponsorship messages. There are no restrictions on advertisements from nonprofit organizations and no restrictions on the types of advertising that can be broadcasted on our Internet stream or appear on our radio station's website. We invite anyone wishing to sponsor the station to contact us to make arrangements.
