Morro Bay community radio station goes on air

Morro Bay officially has a new community radio station.

97.3 FM "The Rock" officially went on air at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.

After a two-year wait, the community station finally received their FCC license and began broadcasting.

Founder Hal Abrams said it took a village to get the station on the air.

"[We were] rallying the troops," he said. "Finding people that are interested in community radio and that want to participate."

The station is a non-profit organization.

It took about $30,000 to get "The Rock" on air, and they estimate it will cost about $5,000 every year to keep it running.

The station has 26 different on-air talents right now.

It will be broadcasting both talk shows and music shows, and genres of music will range from classical to hip-hop.
