What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Long Beach is a major urban city in Southern California adjacent to the Port of Los Angeles, but has been under-recognized and under-utilized as a creative hub for art, music, news and public affairs. The lack of an outlet or community access to media training or facilities has stifled, civic engagement, growth and opportunities for local talent and businesses.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

99.1 KLBP-FM

LBCTMC currently holds an FCC construction permit for a Low Power FM station and is expected to begin broadcasting late 2018. After learning that an LPFM application window had opened up in 2012, the group decided to pursue community radio. Out of several thousand applicants, the group’s commitment to freedom of speech and accessible media, made it a stand out. Following a lengthy process, LBCTMC was awarded an LPFM permit.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Long Beach Public Media is seeking to launch the city's first public radio station devoted to local news, issues and stories. The low-power FM station is slated to broadcast at 99.1 FM throughout West Long Beach and the greater Downtown area. Our end goal is to generate media jobs, economic opportunities for local businesses, and increase community engagement while fostering local talent.

Leading up to the radio station launch, we will continue to host monthly training workshops, mobile recording days, membership drives, and fundraisers. We have found that these grassroots events have proven effective in connecting with local radio enthusiasts, producers, business owners and community organizers. They have also been a great place for local content creators to connect on issues they care about and work together to develop programming.

Although our initial FCC construction permit limits our broadcast range, we have made it a priority to run a companion online stream to make programming accessible to all residents. After three years of successful broadcast, we can begin to petition the FCC to expand our broadcast signal range. In the meantime, our programming will also be made available via the TuneIn radio app, which is available in 197 countries and territories with a built-in audience of 75 million active listeners worldwide, setting a global stage for our homegrown talent.

Long Beach Public Media's ten-person Board of Directors currently serves as the project's defacto managers, overseeing everything from finances, programming, fundraising, facility operations, and legal compliance alongside a strong network of professional volunteers. The Board is comprised of experienced radio educators, marketing professionals, engineers, and community leaders with a wide range of talents and skills crucial to the successful execution of the project.

We have a good number of volunteers currently in production of programs for broadcast, many of whom have participated in the workshops we have provided to help them refine their program concepts and provide them practice and training in producing those programs in a broadcast-ready format. We have sparked excitement throughout the city which inspired a local business to donate valuable space in their prime location building giving us a 10-year rent-free lease for our studio home. Earlier we received a major donation of studio equipment from Cumulus Broadcasting that will nearly completely furnish our studio with analog broadcast equipment. We also recently were awarded a Knight Foundation grant to help fund completion of the studio and transmitter tower. Next is to accomplish those milestones listed above.
