#SaveWUMD from RIPR Takeover
WUMD, 89.3 FM in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, celebrated its 45th birthday on January 13th.
Sadly, the station may not be on the air for its 46th.
Leadership at Rhode Island Public Radio (RIPR) have made secret dealings with UMass Dartmouth administration.
The university is planning to sell the frequency to RIPR to simply rebroadcast nationally-produced syndicated shows such as All Things Considered.
This will remove one of the few remaining independent music and alternative features stations in the area.
To fight this, the station members have set up a facebook page. Click here to find out more about how to #SaveWUMD.
