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.
We will launch a 3,300-watt community radio station on 90.7-FM throughout Greene and Columbia counties in 2010, and an online radio station currently playing local recordings around the clock. The WGXC project will be much more than just a radio station, including media training for youth and other members of the community, and a blog, local calendar of events and meetings, photography, and more. This will be an interactive multi-media project engaging the community to report about what's going on in Greene and Columbia counties.
