AOC Community Media is seeking radio personalities for its new Internet radio station, Cypress Street Radio, set to launch November 1.
AOC is holding an informational launch meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 6 p.m. at AOC to recruit local producers, news readers, operators and others interested in Internet radio.
"Our new service will give yet another outlet for local residents to tell their diverse stories, share their opinions and express their creativity," said Ed Bowie, executive director of AOC. "This platform is perfect for residents with opinions to share, nonprofits with causes to promote, creatives with ideas to express, narrators with great reading voices and even technically skilled individuals with the desire to help people produce important local content."
Content on Cypress Street Radio must be non-commercial, locally produced and address issues relevant to the community. AOC will also teach beginners interested in participating the basics of Internet radio production as well as the elements of quality radio programming.
Cypress Street Radio will stream online through SHOUTcast, linked to on AOC's website, www.aocinc.org and on mobile phones through the SHOUTcast application.
To be involved with AOC's new community project, individuals must be AOC members who live in Lafayette Parish. Memberships range from $25-35 per year.
