On October 10, 2014 the Federal Communications Commission awarded a Construction Permit to ART FM, Inc. for the development of a new broadcast station.  Our assigned frequency is 97.1 FM, our new call letters are WXOX and we will soon be audible over the air in Louisville, Kentucky U.S.A.

As we move toward the FM dial, expect the same great ARTxFM programming now enjoyed online to continue uninterrupted. We are so proud of all of our DJs and have great confidence in each of their unique shows.  While we have been impatient for the grant of our FM Permit, we are thankful that the past two years of online broadcasting have provided us with the tools and experience necessary to bring our station confidently into the Big Time.

The attainment of an FM broadcast license is the result of many years of hard work from ARTxFM Staff and Board of Directors.  We congratulate them all.  It also could not have happened without the help of REC NetworksCommon Frequency, and the Prometheus Radio Project - all of whom worked to pass the Local Community Radio Act of 2009 which made this opportunity possible and provided constant support throughout the application process.

ARTxFM would not be possible without our supporters. We are so thankful to everyone who has believed in us throughout this journey and brought us to this historical moment. Thank you and Congratulations.  97.1 FM Louisville.  This great accomplishment is yours.
