New 96.7 FM COMING SOON
September / October 2015
The new 96.7 FM Music Tampa Bay antenna is now ready to be mounted on a downtown St Pete high-rise building. This location however is managed by an agency of the federal government, and the lease negotiations have taken nearly an entire year. But that process is now nearly complete, and construction and testing of the new station is expected to begin in the NEXT FEW WEEKS.
Programming will duplicate what is already heard in the MTB music stream, featuring all original music by local bay area artists EXCLUSIVELY. Live shows are planned from St Pete's Original Listening Room, the Hideaway Cafe & Recording Studio in the Grand Central District. A second studio location is now also being sought for additional programming and mangerial operations.
An aggressive effort is being mounted to recruit new recordings from all local artists, including students pursuing music careers at local colleges and high schools. On-air and administrative internships will also be available for students interested careers in broadcasting.
MTB is also now actively seeking volunteers to manage music programming, including operating the sophisticated software used for automated music programming. Additionally, volunteers are needed to monitor and make adjustments to transmitter and emergency broadcast equipment needed to keep the station on the air 24/7/365.
More than $20,000 has already been spent, with more set aside for engineering and maintenance costs. Sponsorships will be available to local businesses, and tax deductible donations are being accepted, to offset these costs.
Anyone interested in becoming involved is invited to contact rick@MTB.fm, or call or text 727-455-8848.
