#SaveWUMD from RIPR Takeover


WUMD, 89.3 FM in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, a non-commercial college and community radio station with a 45-year history, is under attack.

Leadership at Rhode Island Public Radio (RIPR) have made secret dealings with UMass Dartmouth administration to purchase the frequency and simply rebroadcast nationally-produced syndicated shows such as All Things Considered.

This will remove one of the few remaining independent music and alternative features stations in the area.

To fight this, the station members have set up a facebook page.

MergingArts recently produced an episode for the Sprouts syndicated radio program. Click here to listen to The Tenuous Future of Grassroots Radio.
