RADIO FOR MILWAUKEE noncomm WYMS (88NINE RADIOMILWAUKEE)'s Internet stream will go silent for 24 hours on TUESDAY (6/26) as part of the national "DAY OF SILENCE" by web broadcasters to drum up support for CONGRESS' Internet Radio Equality Act.
"RADIOMILWAUKEE is participating in the DAY OF SILENCE because this is one of the best ways to accomplish two goals: raise awareness of the threat posed to free Internet radio and demonstrate what will be lost if Internet radio is forced to go silent," said RADIO FOR MILWAUKEE Exec. Director J. MIKEL ELLCESSOR. "RADIOMILWAUKEE exists to champion southeastern WISCONSIN's creative communities, add a diverse, contemporary voice to the noncommercial space and raise awareness of the MILWAUKEE region's tremendous vitality. Our free Internet stream supports all three of these goals."
