As Salt Lake community radio station KRCL prepares for its May 5 format switch, displaced volunteer programmers and former staff are planning the launch of Utah Free Media, an Internet-only radio station that will stream on bandwidth donated by Utah ISP XMission. “We’re doing it more for the love of radio, and community and music,” says Troy Mumm, former KRCL operations director, in the Salt Lake City Weekly. “Our purpose is to have a continuation of grass-roots, volunteer-based radio.” Donna Land Maldonado, KRCL g.m., tells the Salt Lake Tribune: “More power to them.”
