In this age of smart phones, the internet and social media, older forms of mass communication are being challenged to stay relevant. Jeff Rousset, the national organizer for the Prometheus Radio Project, based in Philadelphia, is working to build new outlets for an old medium that's dear to our hearts: radio.
Prometheus is a nonprofit organization that builds community radio as a tool for social justice and community expression.
"A lot of my time is spent working directly with groups who want to start stations," said Rousset. "This week I organized and facilitated a conference call talking to people about what's the process involved with starting a community radio station."
On Oct. 15, nonprofits and community groups will be able to apply for thousands of new non-commercial, low-power FM radio licenses.
