We Need your help
Hello Radio Supporters and Listeners,
I hope you all have enjoyed our radio KRYZ-LPFM 98.5 and www.KRYZRadio.org. We strive to give you our supporters and listeners the best we can. We're still very young and working to make our community radio the best. We have many proposed shows that we hope you will find informative, inspirational and entertaining. As always we ask for your feedback to let us know what you would like to hear.
Because we are a low-power FM radio station, our coverage is limited on FM so in order to expand our limited coverage, we implemented a internet radio that simultaneously streams our FM broadcast so for those that are out of reach of our FM coverage, they would be able to listen to our broadcast via the internet.
To broadcast over the internet, we are required to pay royalty fees through licensing agencies which include ASCAP, BMI, SoCan and SoundExchange in addition to paying the royalty fee's we pay to ASCAP and BMI for our FM broadcast (yes we have to pay twice - a fee to ASCAP and BMI for our FM broadcast and again to ASCAP, BMI, SoCan and SoundExchange for the internet radio.)
Late last year, the Copyright Royalty Board which is suppose to regulate the licensing fees, decided not to renew the Small Webcasters Settlement Act which was the protection for small internet radio stations allowing them to pay a smaller fee that was in line with their listener-ship and enabled small internet radio stations such as we are, to afford to serve their communities.
What this means is that we - www.KRYZRadio.org - now have to pay 5 times the amount that we paid in December of 2015. To keep our internet radio station on the air we are asking you, our listeners and supporters to subscribe to our radio station. Our subscription fee is Bronze - $10, Silver - $20 or Gold - $50.
Although subscriptions are not mandatory and we will continue to provide our listeners with free access, your subscription will allow us to stay on the air.

SMALL WEBCASTERS, ARTISTS, & INDIE LABELS STAND TOGETHER
The expiration of the Webcaster Settlement Act has left many small webcasters facing a steep increase in royalty rates and unsure of their future survival.
We support fair and transparent payment to artists and rightsholders when their work is used. We also recognize that small broadcasters are vitally important to musical culture, whether it’s small community FM stations or online webcasters who program niche music and artists you might not hear elsewhere. Commercial FM radio is increasingly focused on narrow repetitive playlists due to consolidation in station ownership. By contrast, webcasting reflects far greater diversity—from cutting edge releases by contemporary artists to America’s rich and varied musical traditions. And unlike commercial FM, internet radio pays musicians and labels.
We believe artists and small webcasters are on the same team. Let’s keep it that way!
We’re optimistic that a solution can be found to allow many small commercial webcasters to continue to operate, and ensure that great music continues to get played and artists continue to get paid—directly, transparently and fairly.
