Ramping Up, Prometheus Seeks Donations

Advocacy group the Prometheus Radio Project is pitching its supporters for donations as it ramps up its plan to help get more low-power FM stations on the air.

In anticipation of FCC action this Friday — when the commission is expected to announce rules for the next round of LPFM applications — Prometheus wrote that its average cost of supporting groups through the process is $1,500 per group; and Prometheus wants to help put 1,000 new stations on the air.

“It’s been a 12-year fight to arrive at this moment, and together, we’ve won it,” writes Prometheus.

“But our biggest job is still ahead. As we lead the way towards the largest expansion of community radio in U.S. history, Prometheus will be helping hundreds of groups through the license application process.”

The solicitation is signed, “Electromagnetically yours … Prometheus Staff and Board.”

The group also is hiring; it is advertising for an IT manager, a position that pays $21,000 and involves 24 hours a week.
