WBAI 99.5fm Community Listener Sponsored Radio: WBAI 99.5 FM, part of the Pacifica network, is the only alternative listener supported, non-commercial community radio station in New York City. It takes no underwriting or commercials and is subject to no censorship or sponsorship. Saving this radio station, with its incredibly strong signal, is important not just to public radio listeners in the tri-state area, but to the integrity of a free society which requires a free press and alternatives to mainstream corporate media outlets. WBAI 99.5 FM was already struggling with escalating rent costs and, like most non-profits, with declining revenue as a result of the economic downturn of 2008. Hurricane Sandy forced WBAI from its broadcast facilities in lower Manhattan. Confronted with this situation, the staff and volunteers came together as never before, moving the station out of its former home in just a matter of weeks into temporary admin space and temporary broadcast studio at City College. The future of WBAI is actually bright, so long as we are able to overcome the present crisis. We are actively negotiating the purchase of a building, which will give us a permanent home that we own and significantly reduce our fixed costs on an ongoing basis.
