Low Power Community Radio on the Brink of Expansion

Listen to "Low Power Community Radio on the Brink of Expansion"

At the beginning of 2011, President Obama signed into law the Local Community Radio Act that allows for the biggest expansion of community radio stations in U.S. history.
The Local Community Radio Act allows low-power, neighborhood-based stations to broadcast in urban areas for the first time.
It also marks both the first major legislative success for the growing movement for a more democratic media system in the U.S. and power shifting to grassroots groups and media advocates. Moreover, it invites policymakers to join forces to overcome corporate opposition to media diversity.
We talk with Vanessa Graber, community radio director at the Prometheus Radio Project, about Low Power Radio and we'll learn more about the Local Community Radio Act.
