Let’s make History together! Join us in bringing Community Radio to Long Beach!
The Long Beach Community TV & Media Corporation’s 501(c)(3) Board of Directors challenge you to become a part of History as we move toward building a Low-powered FM Community Radio Station in Long Beach. We want YOU to take ownership and pride in KLBP-FM. We need your help laying the foundation for this station, so come prepared to share your vision for KLBP and feel free to bring a friend, neighbor, or your family! This is your station!
Join us for a Membership Meeting on August 21st, 2016 from 5-7PM at The Expo Arts Center located at 4321 Atlantic Ave. Long Beach, CA 90807.
We will be discussing our capital goals and plans for an upcoming KLBP Fair and Fundraiser, including community workshops and more. If you are interested in volunteering or being involved please fill out our interest form.
At time of mass infotainment, where our society is increasingly misinformed and misled by corporate media, it’s crucial that we champion freedom of speech; free from corporate manipulation. It’s a time to step forward and take part in building strong community radio in Long Beach!
We’d be remiss not to mention, that it’s recently come to our attention, that some members may have been discouraged from continuing with the Long Beach Radio Project due to recent threats of legal action against our current Board of Directors—and that some of you may have personally been targeted and threatened with legal action. If you have been led to believe there is a restraining order in effect against our members, please know that this information is false and designed to mislead. There has been no such action granted by the court, and so we keep moving forward in building a station. Rest assured that our legal team is working to take appropriate action.
Because these stations are highly coveted and their systems, transmitters, and tower can eventually be sold for profit, lawsuits of this kind are par for the course. The information sent to members that two people hold 65% ownership of the license is the result of fraudulent paperwork filed by those individuals. We intend to hold these individuals accountable. If you have received any legal threats, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
To understand why this is happening, it’s important to know what’s at stake:
For the first time in over a decade, the FCC has granted licenses for new Low Powered FM stations to community benefit non-profit organizations. Out of several thousand applicants, LBCTMC prevailed. However, that is just one small step in the process of building community station. We must now rise together to meet our fundraising challenges together!
My promise to you and this organization is to ensure that this station always belongs to our community. So again, I invite you to join me and our Board of Directors in taking the next step toward building vibrant, strong, and diverse radio in Long Beach.
Upward and Onward,
Interim President, LBCTMC
Board of Directors
