Lake City Radio was formed 11/1/2000 to offer public access broadcasting
for Hinsdale County, Colorado. Also to offer postings of up-coming events, local meetings, job listings, local news
& weather, and a learning activity for Lake City School children and other community members.
Lake City Radio is looking to expand our tourism of the area
to help Hinsdale County grow in order to help keep the people of our area working. Also, to allow for Emergency Information
to be accessible in the case of disaster situations like in 2002 when forest fires were closing in less than 30 miles from
the town of Lake City.
Lake City Radio has been broadcasting for 2 1/2 years with the help of
Rocky Mountain Cable, and the support of our underwriters and members. But, due to the FCC not allowing anyone in the
United States to apply for a broadcasting license, we will be shuting down until such time that we will be allowed to expand
to an airwave signal.
Lake City Radio would like to thank all who have given time and money to
our organization, and hope we will be able to begin or broadcast sometime in Summer 2004.
