“Radioactive Materials -Broadcasting Opportunities for Business”
Presented By Sharon Scott, Founder & President of ART FM

Making an impact in business requires focusing on a target area and releasing the most powerful device.  With an energy that is creative, not destructive, radio is the perfect tool. For this event, Sharon Scott, founder of WXOX 97.1 FM, will host an on-air workshop for NEW Entrepreneurs providing guidance on radio interviews and opportunities to create custom underwriting announcements.

Sharon M. Scott is the Founder and President of ART FM / WXOX 97.1 FM Louisville, an arts-focused radio station committed to providing artists and community members access to the airwaves for free and experimental use. ART FM employs sound, music, and conversation to explore the hidden properties of audio broadcasting. ART FM currently is home to more than eighty weekly programs that range from music to talk to experimentation. Since its inception in 2012, this nonprofit organization has trained hundreds of community members and prepared them to become professional broadcasters. Operating 24 hours a day / 356 days a year, ART FM can be heard locally on 97.1 FM and streamed worldwide on www.ARTxFM.com.
