99.3FM, WBTV-LP Internship Summer 2015
By the summer of 2016, 99.3FM, WBTV-LP, will be a low-power FM community radio station on the air in Burlington, created by a consortium of community leaders and nonprofit media centers (RETN, Channel 17/Town Meeting Television, and VCAM).

When you hear “local community radio”, what do you think of?
We’ve got a few ideas, and the foremost of those is that YOU KNOW BEST. So come together with fellow community members this coming Monday, April 20th at 7pm at the WBTV studios (handily located inside VCAM at the west end of Flynn Ave.
We’ll bring the snacks, you bring your voice and some good ideas for Burlington’s very own Listening Tree, deep in the heart of WBTV-LP, 99.3FM, Burlington Vermont’s newest local community radio station.
C’mon. It’ll be fun.
The folks working hard on the planning for the station are launching a series of Community Listening & Info Sessions this spring. This is a chance for us to explain to you what this low-power community radio station is about, the timeline, and for YOU to learn how to get involved, how to support, and how to help us shape the vision of the station & structure.
Our first 99.3FM WBTV-LP Community Listening Session will be Monday, April 20th 7pm-8:30pm at the VCAM/RETN media center space at 208 Flynn Ave., suite 2-G in Burlington, VT’s South End. Everyone is invited, come drop-in, stay the whole time, tell your friends — we will have snacks!
