About WGXC community radio


WGXC is a community-run media project, re-envisioning radio as an innovative platform for local participation. Our inclusive programming connects diverse voices, and distributes information across the public spectrum in New York’s Greene and Columbia counties. WGXC will be a 3,300-watt FM radio station in 2010. WGXC Online Radio is currently on the air at http://www.WGXC.org. This is the multi-authored news blog for WGXC, with news items, links, and other stories about Greene and Columbia counties in New York State. www.WGXC.org

WGXC: Hands-On Radio aims to be a self-sustaining community-oriented radio station airing news and entertainment, all with a clear intent to reflect, engage, and educate its listening public and, by extension, the communities it serves. On a broader level, WGXC-FM hopes that through its efforts to give voice to all within the local community, it will help to evolve the region to new times of greater opportunity, more responsibility, increased accessibility and transparency, and a more open discussion of who we are, where we’ve come from, and where we can still move forward. By opening up all governmental meetings via transmission, reportage and archiving, by balancing focus on local businesses, organizations and individuals, as well as the wishes of governing bodies, we hope to reflect both a new level of sophistication amongst our residents, as well as longstanding concerns specific to where we live. In doing so, we are hoping to better the climate for all community-minded projects within our region.
