A new FM station will be coming to SeaTac, a community south of Seattle. The FCC has issued a construction permit to OneAmerica that will air on 106.5 MHz.
“OneAmerica’s educational programming consists of workshops, presentations and trainings related to immigrants, immigration, civics and communications,” it wrote in its application for a low-power FM. ���The goal of our organization is to build power in immigrant communities through leadership development, civic engagement, communications and policy work.”
It said over the past 15 years, the demographics of SeaTac and South King County have changed greatly. “They have developed into majority people of color areas with large numbers of new immigrants and refugees settling there from all over the world.” The group hopes to help get educational information to immigrants and refugees “in languages that they would understand.”
Rich Stolz is executive director of OneAmerica; Paul Bame of Prometheus Radio Project is listed as consulting engineer.
