In Late 2010, with passage of the Local Community Radio Act, new non-commercial radio stations were granted the chance to seek licenses for the first time in more than a decade. The FCC accepted new applications from prospective stations in 2013 and Ann Arbor Community Radio was the only Washtenaw County applicant to file a submission. The station's official call sign is WEGV and will transmit from the frequency at 102.3 FM.
We are particularly interested in promoting greater diversity on the airwaves by providing access to communities traditionally under-represented in media including African American & multicultural families, women and seniors. It's our goal that a new station will ultimately serve as a resource for Ann Arbor residents and learning outlet for local students interested in pursuing careers in media and broadcasting.
