Community radio plays a vital role in building vibrant communities, in mobilizing groups to action by informing and empowering citizens, in giving voice to the marginalized groups of society, and in bringing community needs to the attention of local and even national governments. CIMA Report on Community Radio - 2007
Studies show that communities with public driven media are more vibrant and connected. Here's our chance to make Hendricks County even better.
This station is driven on the ideas and support of ALL of us in the community. We want your ideas and we want your participation.
WYRZ is 100% funded by those who want to see community radio succeed in our community. Let's pull together and make it work Hendricks County.
Years of planning and preparation have gotten us to where we are ready to make this a reality. We need your support. Let's build this together.
Shane Ray is the station manager of WYRZ-LP and the executive director of the Hendricks County Educational Media Corporation. Shane has owned and managed XRBradio.com - the VOICE of Hendricks County for 5 years, offering local shows, sports, and more. It was apparent that the audience wanted a community station that could also be heard in the car as well as online so the idea of WYRZ was born. Since the dream was a community supported station, the focus to make this a reality is fund-raising and Shane is leading the efforts to purchase the first few items needed including an FM transmitter, new tower, and studio equipment.
I would like to put a few sentences here about our programming. Any ideas on the copy?

Thought we could announce some events here.Brownsburg, IN - April 3,2013
