Prometheus Crowdfunds

As the LPFM application window approaches the Prometheus Radio Project is trying to raise $20,000 to help a handful of groups get their applications into the FCC and their stations onto the air.

Therefore they have put together an Indiegogo crowdfunding page with a goal of $20,000. As of 9/19/2013 the effort was a little short, with an Oct. 9 deadline looming.

Prometheus says that $20K can: support an engineering and technical team, composed of several part-time and full-time staffers; create and hold at least 10 online training sessions on best practices for station management, community engagement, programming creation, FCC compliance and more; coordinate regional training for several stations that include hands-on workshops; support dedicated staff time to coordinate individually with fledgling stations to create a timeline for building their station.
