Urban areas have limited airwave availability due to the high number of commercial stations. The new rule will give urban organizations the ability to apply for LPFM stations via second-adjacent waivers.Those expected to benefit in the relaxed airwave rules are community organizations within Pasadena.The National Hispanic Media Coalition also commended the move. For years, the NHMC has been fighting for diversity in media ownership and against negative stereotypes in the media. “We joined this effort so that Latino-led and Latino-serving organizations could have a greater presence on the radio dial. We need a diversity of voices to help transform the anti-Latino and anti-immigrant discourse which dominates the radio,” said Jessica Gonzalez, NHMC’s Vice President of Policy and Legal Affairs.NHMC has been working closely with a coalition of media advocacy groups, led by Prometheus Radio Project, to call for the relaxation of the airwave rule.NHMC said it would continue working with the Prometheus Radio Project to help promote awareness of this opportunity to organizations nationwide. For more information about LPFM and the application process, call NHMC at (626) 792-6462.About NHMCThe National Hispanic Media Coalition is a non-partisan, non-profit, media advocacy and civil rights organization established in 1986 in Los Angeles, California.
