Bentonville Community Radio

$1,930 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 38 months
KOBV is an upcoming community radio station which will broadcast Bentonville event news and an eclectic mix of music (e.g. rock, electronic and hip hop).

Bentonville has until October 2016 to create the station. We need to raise $15,000 for equipment, engineering and licensing. Thank you for your support! KOBV is a non-profit. 100% of your donation will go to station launch costs.

Background: In 2013, KOBV applied for a low power FM (LPFM) license for Bentonville's only open frequency, 103.3 FM. Through a very lucky series of events, the FCC granted the construction permit in April 2015. This is a rare chance for community radio. Most cities' radio-waves are completely full, the FCC hasn't accepted LPFM applications since 2001 and it may never happen again. Donate now and help start Bentonville community radio.

Thank you for bringing local radio to Bentonville! I used to love listening to KGSR in Austin in the old days. They had a billboard on Lamar, I think, that read "Format Schmormat"
