What is an Artifact?

It’s difficult sometimes to find a best practice. Instead, the Transmission Project seeks out examples of Honest Practice from the partners we work with and support. These intermediary and process documents probably won’t give you the answer you seek, but we hope they provide you with examples, building blocks and inspiration to help you develop your own individual practice.

LPFM Station Survey

Prometheus Radio Project

Corps member Katie Ingersoll at Prometheus Radio Project is surveying LPFM stations throughout the nation to collect information about their unique programming, how they manage their station, and their finances. The data will be added to the Community Media Database project to act as a resource to stations and future LPFM applicants, allowing them to locate and contact other stations, and see information about how other stations function.

Katie made the survey and will be heading up outreach to stations to drive participation.
