WRP will be the best way to get your news in Paris, both local and international. A radio station in English for Paris is a dream many expats and English language lovers have had for years. This is a very exciting project with great potential, but that can only become a reality thanks to you, our future listeners.
WORLD RADIO PARIS : A NEWS RADIO FOR THE FRENCH CAPITAL
On October 3rd, the French authorities (CSA) have licensed our non-profit organization to broadcast in Paris. WRP will be the first radio station allowed to broadcast in English, starting Spring 2013.
World Radio Paris will bring a mix of news and entertainment to the many English-speakers living in Paris.
With exclusive programming from the BBC, NPR and other world-famous broadcasters, WRP will be the best source for both international and local news for expats and also for English-language lovers living in Paris.
As you can imagine, launching a radio station requires a lot of money...
This first crowd-funding effort is aimed at helping with the initial expenses : promotional and marketing tools, basic studio equipment (microphones, headsets, mixing console, computers, software, furniture, etc...), server costs and streaming setup fees.
Our radio being a news/talk station, this requires lots of different audio contributions from our volunteers. We want them to be able to record from home. But to achieve this, we need to buy a USB radio-quality microphone for each one of them. This is also something we want to do thanks to your financial help.
Although we will have a permanent fund-raising committee (which you can join!) we urgently need to invest in this crucial basic equipment to start our recordings (promos, jingles...)
Thank you so much for your help.This is the begining of an amazing story.
