As you may know, some UofL students, faculty, and staff, including UofL’s Sustainability Coordinator, Justin Mog, are currently collaborating with others in the community to launch a new community radio station here in Louisville: FORward Radio, WFMP 106.5 FM!!
The new station is on the verge of going on-air and we are asking for your support and input to finally launch! We ask you to consider supporting this vital community resource in anyway possible!
We plan to begin on-air broadcasting in January 2017 and now is the time to get involved and help shape the programming you’ll hear on FORward Radio, WFMP 106.5 FM Louisville.
- Please DONATE to our $3000 campaign to raise the additional funds we need to cover the first six months of broadcasting. Tax-deductible contributions of any amount welcome!
- Take our brief SURVEY to let us know what kinds of programming you most want to hear and how you intend to listen.
- PITCH US programming that you would like to help create!
- SHARE this message with any individuals or groups you think may be interested in supporting, working with, and listening to FORward Radio!
Election got you down? Get Radio Active!
Feeling down in the dumps? Looking for a way to dig ourselves out of the hole we’re in?
How about helping get our own community radio station on the air?! We are the antidote to plutocracy! FORward Radio Louisville seeks to inspire, train, and empower our listeners to present your own ideas, create your own programs, and network with others around the community.
Just imagine 24/7 commercial-free, community-controlled, independent radio broadcasting the voices that have been too long excluded from our airwaves! You can help make this dream a reality.
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit community radio group with a construction permit from the FCC to broadcast low-power FM radio to the greater Louisville community on frequency 106.5. As we approach our broadcast launch, planned for early next year, we know that FORward Radio’s continued success will depend on our community. Your donations will ensure that nationally syndicated programs, such as Democracy Now!, Truthdig, and Union Edge, will be heard in Louisville at 106.5 FM – and that local voices will have a platform at WFMP, where we will broadcast stories by and about everyday people, told in their own unique voices. Let’s start building a community “immune system” by actively engaging each other over the airwaves.
Just visit our website, forward-radio.net, and click “Donate” at the top right. Or you can send a check, made payable to “Fellowship of Reconciliation” with “FORward Radio” on the memo line, and mail it to us at:

Remember, your donations are fully tax-deductible and “ ’tis the season ” for giving!
Thanks for your support!
