Nearly a year and a half after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted a request for WGOT-LP, the Civic Media Center’s radio project, to move up the dial to its own frequency, plans have been coming together for a physical broadcast studio space. WGOT is partnering with Sweetwater Organic Coffee for this studio space. Board member Dave Drobach adds, “We are excited to have a physical studio and expand to a 24-hour LP-FM signal!”
Although the FCC has granted us our own frequency, the location of the tower (near I-75 and NW 39th Avenue) and power (100 watts) will not be changing because of current definitions of low power FM (LPFM) radio.
