After proving the concept in 2019, I felt it was time to make a real go of this. Who me? Oh, I’m Anthony Gettig, the guy behind this station project. I started broadcasting in 1983 in high school and have been in it one way or another ever since.
Why radio? Why not YouTube or a podcast? Because radio provides immediacy. A playlist or podcast will not tell you when there is imminent danger like a tornado or flood, but radio will!
With on air personalities that live here in our beautiful state, we’ll have conversations with you that are relevant and relatable.
So why streaming radio and not AM or FM? Three reasons: cost, availability, and coverage. The cost of purchasing a station is astronomical. The FCC is not accepting applications for new stations at this time. And why be limited to just one area when we can reach the whole state (and beyond) by streaming?
The cost of getting up and running as a streaming station is WAY more within the reach of mere mortals like myself. Apps make it easy to listen anywhere and many people have unlimited mobile data. At some point, I hope we can expand to an FM signal, but I’m happy for these humble beginnings.
