Local community station KMRE 102.3 FM has announced a new location and nonprofit organization. It will now be broadcasting out of the Bellingham National Bank Building, 103 Holly ST., Suite B-4 in May. Daylight Properties and Bob Hall will sponsor the station’s new home.
The community raised more than $15,000 for the transition and new location, including a $5,000 donation from the Spark Museum.
KMRE had been broadcasting from the museum, but had to relocate due to space constraints. The station was asked to find a new home in November. As part of its relaunch, KMRE has formed a new non-profit organization, Kulshan Community Media, to take over the license and operate the station. KMRE is a nonprofit community radio station, home to more than 35 local shows produced by more than 60 volunteers. For more information, visit KMRE.org.
