Welcome!

Wisconsin Community Media supports the creation of TV and radio programming for communities.

Due to the support of local municipalities, cable companies, non-profit organizations and local businesses, you can see what your community is up to by watching your local community access channel on cable, listening to your local LPFM radio station, or finding programs online.

WCM believes it is important to have community-based media facilities that can be used by "everyday" people to reach the broader community.

And when people communicate with each other on this kind of scale, it creates a sense of community we can all be proud of —— Strong media centers. Strong communities.

WCM talks about community media on the podcast, Local Government Matters

During the first week of February, Jeff Robbins, Director of Sun Prairie Media Center; Ryan VanLanduyt, Director of Rice Lake Community Media and Mary Cardona, Executive Director of Wisconsin Community Media were guests on Local Government Matters, a podcast by The Wheeler Report. The three start off the podcast with an explanation of what Community Media is, where it started, and where it is going in the future.

Maybe our Members of Congress can affect the FCC’s thinking before it issues a damaging Order…

Three members of Congress from Wisconsin have written to the FCC about their concerns about its 05-311 rulemaking — a rulemaking that could abolish community TV. They are Senator Tammy Baldwin, Represenative Mark Pocan and Representative Gwen Moore. We want you to help move the rest of our delegation to write. The Alliance for Community Media has created a letter generator that makes it easy for anyone to email their congressperson.
