Community radio is a service offering a third model of radio broadcasting in addition to commercial and public broadcasting. Community stations serve geographic communities and communities of interest. They broadcast content that is popular and relevant to a local, specific audience but is often overlooked by commercial or mass-media broadcasters. Community radio stations are operated, owned, and influenced by the communities they serve. They are generally nonprofit and provide a mechanism for enabling individuals, groups, and communities to tell their own stories, to share experiences and, in a media-rich world, to become creators and contributors of media.
Low Power FM (LPFM) is a form of FM Broadcasting that uses a low amount of energy to broadcast a signal that travels about 10 miles in all directions. FM, or frequency modulation radio is often transmitted on a higher frequency than AM radio. Because of the low power usage and short range, LPFM is often seen as a radio station that plays things that relate more to the small surrounding community.
WTGP’s mission is to educate and empower our listeners through radio programs that will ‘influence the hearts and minds’ of the community.
WTGP 99.9FM is a community, volunteer powered and listener supported station-providing the community with views on public affairs, news for small business entrepreneurs and youth programming.
