New mission to get community radio station in Ferndale

Posted at 6:48 PM, Sep 02, 2016

One group is working to get a community station up and running in Ferndale.

The idea came out six years ago during a conversation between Michelle Mirowski and her friends, who said it would be cool to start a radio station.

Now, 100.7 is closer to becoming a reality. Mirowski and some friends applied when they heard the FCC opened up the FM dial for community based low frequency stations.

It would be similar to a college radio format with indie rock and a lot of local music. The focus would be on bringing the community closer while covering the creativity that is Ferndale.

They also already have space for their studio inside the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale.

So far, they have raised a few thousand dollars with an Indiegogo campaign, but still have a ways to go. For more information on how to donate, visit indiegogo.com.
