WBTV-LP is about to launch online in December and on your radio in spring of 2017.

We have some final start-up costs we need funding for (the new online streaming service!), as well as the annual expenses of maintaining the station that we are looking to our community supporters and programmers to help us cover through annual station memberships, starting at just $9.93/year. 

Thank you for supporting community radio! 


How can I make a donation to WBTV-LP?

Any amount helps, but to give you an idea of how far your dollar can go:

  • $25 – Basic WBTV-LP membership helps to support the final costs associated with getting on the air – the new cables, the final signage, and the training costs to get new programmers ready to turn the mic on.
  • $50 – Mid Level WBTV-LP membership helps to establish our important subscriptions to national radio-broadcast services and establishes us online.
  • $100 – High Level WBTV-LP membership helps to back the tech build out faster, funding the purchase of in-studio gear, monitors, and more.
  • $250+ – Major Level WBTV-LP membership helps to turn the dial way past ten with directly funding large, one-time purchases of gear like the transmitter to get us on-air.

VCAM is the fiscal sponsor of 99.3FM, WBTV-LP, so all donations can be made through VCAM online (credit card or paypay) or by check made out to “VCAM” and noted to be added to the “WBTV-LP Fund.” Mail checks to 208 Flynn Ave. 2-G, Burlington, VT 05401. Thank you!

How will this station be funded?

WBTV-LP will operate like all other non-profits, raising money from a variety of sources – sponsorship, events, grants, underwriting, and from individuals. We expect the WBTV-LP to be a member-backed station, with regular annual appeals for support.
