Create

Nearly all of the programming you hear on WTBR-FM is produced by local volunteers who want to share their passions – in music and in conversation – with our listeners.  By following these steps, you can join us and become a community radio producer!

Step 1: Develop A Concept

Every program starts with an idea. Think about what kind of show you want to create. Will it be music? Talk? Work on expressing that idea in a few sentences, in preparation for your proposal.

Step 3: Submit A Proposal

Prospective radio producers are required to submit a program proposal to our Programming Committee for review. Click on the icon above to download and fill out our convenient proposal form.

Step 5: Attend Training

If your proposal is approved, you will be invited to attend WTBR-FM producer training, where you will learn how to apply our rules, use our equipment and create a professional sounding program.

Step 2: Know Our Rules
