New Community Radio Station for Sacramento Lets You-Be-You

Access Sacramento writes a new chapter in local radio history with the issuance of the call sign KUBU-LP for its new 100-watt FM non-profit community radio station planned for midtown Sacramento.

“We’re excited about providing even more opportunities for people to express themselves, and for all the different voices in the community to be heard,” said JoAnn Fuller, Access Sacramento’s chair of the Board of Directors.

While “The Voice” radio producers eagerly await word on Access Sacramento’s application with the FCC for approval to launch a new Low-Power FM radio station in midtown, their anticipation for even quicker improvements has already come true.

Radio Coordinator Shane Carpenter has completed ordering equipment for a full-remodel of Studio Two, with additional enhancements to upgrade elements of Studio One as well.

Access Sacramento’s radio operation “The Voice” may begin broadcasting over-the-airwaves from downtown Sacramento in late 2014 if the FCC approves an application filed last week to operate a Low-Power FM (LPFM) radio station.

The application-filing window closed Friday for non-profit groups to submit an on-line request for the rarely offered LPFM broadcast frequencies.  The last opportunity was a decade ago.

 “Because a LPFM station like this broadcasts less than 10-miles in any one direction, the programming is acutely local,” said Shane Carpenter, Access Sacramento’s radio coordinator. “Because our programmers are already used to serving Sacramento County on cable, this would be a great opportunity for additional outreach.”
