Beginning Saturday Oct 23, The Colorado Sound will be presented on KCMJ in Colorado Springs. The show will air from 3PM-5PM on Saturdays.
According to an email from program director Tim Board and the station’s website: KCMJ is currently only streaming; we are in the middle of trying to raise the remaining $10K needed to erect a tower, purchase a transmitter etc. to get on the FM dial at 93.9FM. Once we do get on the airwaves the broadcast signal will originate in southeastern Colorado Springs. At 100 watts, the signal will reach an approximate 10-mile diameter reception area. We’ll serve the rest of the community via internet, at www.kcmj.org. In the future it may be possible to increase our power.”
This coverage is enough to service a good portion of central and southern Colorado Springs proper … as well, it looks like Fort Carson will be in the coverage area.
KCMJ 93.9 FM is a brand new community radio station. It is non-profit and non-commercial.
Colorado Media Justice Foundation was founded in 2011 to launch and manage this station. On February 6, 2014 we received our FCC permit to construct a low-power FM station to broadcast at 93.9 FM. Programming on the internet began September 21, 2013.
