What's Radio Free Roanoke?
Radio Free Roanoke is a grassroots organization formed to provide local media access and programming to the Roanoke community by starting a Low Power FM (LPFM) nonprofit community radio station.
How will you make that happen?
We began our planning and incorporated in May of 2013 as a Virginia non-stock (non-profit) corporation and on September 3rd, 2015 we were granted 501(c3) status with the IRS. We received our construction permit from the FCC on March 26th of 2015. We are currently working on the station build and need addtional funds to acquire a studio facility. We have until March 26th of 2018 to begin broadcasting. Thanks to all who have helped and supported us in achieving this first major step!
