In 2001, The Federal Communication Commission introduced a new class of low-power radio licenses to the public. It has been ten years since the introduction of LPFM and with the passage of the Local Community Radio Act of 2010, many more new LPFM stations will be started. This panel will look at the current state of LPFM, its challenges, and its future.
