The Columbus Community Radio Foundation (CCRF) was established in 2002 by representatives from Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Latino Arts for Humanity, and Pacifica Radio for the purpose of establishing commercial-free community radio in Columbus, Ohio. Our mission is to bring together diverse and under-represented constituencies within the Central Ohio community in an on-air dialogue and celebration of cultural expression. We aim to serve as an outlet for local, national and international news and analysis not commonly heard elsewhere, as well as drama, music and public affairs programming.
During the past several years, CCRF has fostered alliances to bring together Columbus-area FCC (Federal Communications Commission) permit holders who have been in the process of building non-profit educational FM broadcast facilities. The result has been the launch of a new network of low-power stations that has been set up to simulcast programming over two transmitters in the Central Ohio area. With the transmitters of 50 Watts in NE Columbus and 170 Watts in central Columbus, most of Franklin County is covered with the programming signal.
CCRF assists with fundraising and equipment purchases for our proposed studio. We are currently seeking funds for acquisition of portable recording equipment.
