Peralta Colleges FM Radio Station On the Air in July

2 February 2015

Peralta FM Station-1

For the first time in its 50-year history, the Peralta Colleges will have its own FM radio station to provide educational programming to the community and hands-on broadcast experience to our students.

The FCC granted the Peralta Community College District a Low Power FM Community Broadcast Station license (“construction permit”) after a lengthy application process. There was plenty of competition for the broadcast licenses following a rule change by the FCC, and Peralta’s Public Information Department was successful in its bid to broadcast on one of the two available frequencies in the Bay Area.

Beginning in July, you will be able to hear Peralta’s community radio station in the East Bay at 96.9 FM. The tentative call sign is KGPC.

If you would like to get involved in Peralta’s community radio station, please contact our Executive Director for Public Information, Communications and Media, Jeff Heyman, at jheyman@peralta.edu or 510-466-7369.

Don’t forget to tune into all the great programs on our Internet radio station, 9th Floor Radio, at http://www.9thfloorradio.com/.
