What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Establishing more sustaining and recurring revenue. We are utilizing existing space to create a recording studio that will service the community, but also be a source of revenue for the station. Booking out this service will allow us to rely on this additional steady income to help defray our operating costs.
