Louis Erlanger, president of VT Earth Works, the owners of Brattleboro Community Radio WVEW 107.7 FM, announced that the radio station will temporarily be off the air due to the fire in the Brooks House, where the station is located.
An Internet-only version of the station has been temporarily set up for streaming at http://www.wvew.org, and also via Android cell phones using the WVEW Streamer app.
Station damage is yet to be assessed, as the building is currently off-limits pending a structural review.
Every effort is being made to find a temporary base from which to resume operations, and station members wish to thank all of those who have so quickly and readily offered their help, support and encouragement.
Those wishing to support the station's efforts can find donation and contact information at http://www.wvew.org. They can also write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
