Dear Friends of Independent Media:
We have good news! After a 10-year struggle, the Mountain Area Information Network’s non-profit radio station has a new frequency and much stronger signal.
MAIN-FM 103.7 can now be heard throughout the greater Asheville area!
When Congress authorized low-power FM radio in 2000, it greatly restricted LPFM licenses as a concession to commercial broadcasters. Thanks to your support, Congress removed these restrictions in 2010 by passing the Local Community Radio Act.
This is not only change you can believe in, it’s change you can hear every day on MAIN-FM 103.7.
This 10-year struggle has taken its toll. That’s why we need your help NOW.
Please make a generous donation to support MAIN-FM your local Progressive Voice!
To make a secure online donation, just go to: https://main.nc.us/about/donate/
Or mail your donation to: MAIN, 34 Wall Street, Suite 407, Asheville, NC 28801.
Help us celebrate this long-anticipated media reform victory!
For the first time ever, Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! can be heard on the public airwaves by ALL citizens of Asheville!
With your help, MAIN-FM 103.7 will be bringing more LOCAL VOICES to the Asheville airwaves in the coming weeks and months. If you have an idea for a program, please include it with your donation!
It’s not often that we have the opportunity to celebrate an EXPANSION of progressive voices on the public airwaves. Thanks for your support!
The MAIN Staff and Board of Directors
