California Focus: Alameda Community Radio

As part of our series focusing on community media in California, we introduce Alameda Community Radio KACR 96.1 FM - a nonprofit, listener-sponsored, democratically managed low-power FM radio station dedicated to serving the city of Alameda.

“We are committed to serving, engaging, educating, entertaining, challenging and providing community broadcast access to Alameda,” the mission statement says. “We plan to provide Alameda residents with a responsible, independent and viable forum for neglected perspectives and discussions on important local, national, and global issues of interest, especially those issues of peace, social justice, human rights, democracy, multiculturalism and freedom of expression.” For more backgound about the the new radio and its founders, go here.
