Welcome to Community Media Database 1.0, a free reference site for community media in the United States. This site contains directories, databases, and interactive maps for community access television providers and low-power FM radio stations. We welcome you to use these tools to learn more about the community media providers in your area and across the country. Community media providers are invited to add or update their infomation here for free.
Community Media Database 1.0 is a 3-month pilot project funded by the Benton Foundation, with advice and support provided by the New America Foundation’s Media Policy Initiative. More data is currently being gathered and entered into the database, which will have its first public demonstration at the Free Press National Conference for Media Reform in Boston, April 8-10. Additional collaborators and funders are being sought to carry the project into a Version 2.0, which will incorporate additional forms of community media, through the Spring of 2011 and beyond.
