Last week, G-Town Radio, the upstart Germantown-based Internet radio station run by music and radio enthusiast Jim Bear announced that it’s picking up steam.
According to a news update announcing a $5,000 funding drive, in 2011, the organization was granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit status (hence, the drive), it launched its documentary project Sounds of Germantown and its looking to hire a full-time worker in 2012.
The organization also expanded programming and partnerships:
Every single candidate for City Council’s 8th district came in for interviews and we partnered with WHYY’s Newsworks to present and broadcast a debate between all seven democratic candidates. Our live programming also increased to twenty-two shows each week covering a broad array of topics from under exposed music to personal finance to social justice.
We’ve published a number of stories about the organization, but two profiles stand out: one published in May 2009, and a follow-on profile published a year later.-30-
