    I am not sure.. I have spent an hour reading the website and ... I can't give you an answer. It is not a .gov entity or .org. It is a .com and I did not pursue the "radio" aspect of it at all.

    I emailed the station from their website asking who funds the station and received this response:


    Dear Louisa,
    Thank you for your email.

    Federal News Radio is a commercial business that gets its revenue from the sale of advertisements appearing on the air and on the website.

    I hope this helps and if you have additional questions or need more information, please let me know.

    Best,

    ...And...who are Hubbard's shareholders? Even if it turns up nothing overtly smelling 0bamalike, this is a good exercise in following the money, people.

    Do they have a list of advertisers on their website? "...and gets its revenue..." Does this mean the operation is WHOLLY supported by the revenue it receives?

    I have no idea. I was wondering the same thing. They have a website that might tell who the advertisers are. I should know! It's just about the only radio station that I can get in clearly so I've listened to it quite a bit.

    It claims:

    'the world's first, Internet-only, all-news radio station'
    'Federal News Radio's coverage is non-partisan, non-political'

    Sounds like NPR, so far.........

    You have got to be kidding!!! These are only 4 of the "programs."

    1. Host Francis Rose interviews government executives and contractors about the latest news affecting the way federal employees do their jobs.

    2. Host Derrick Dortch examines everything from how to win government jobs and contracts to effectively managing your government career.

    3. Hosted by the National Institute of Transition Planning, each week the show will focus on a specific area of retirement planning from taxes, to federal benefits, estate planning, and more.

    4. Hosted by Mike Causey, Your Turn takes a look at the biggest pay, benefits, and retirement issues affecting feds today.

    This is total BS.

    Took me a bit, But I ferreted out some of the particulars on that station. It is owned by Hubbard Broadcasting, broadcast almost solely into the Washington DC area and is aimed at Federal employees in the area. It is affiliated with Associated Press, CNN and
    Voice of America (founded in 1976 under Gerald Ford). I looked up a couple of the on air personalities and they seem to have come from somewhat conservative leaning former positions.

    WHEN did "Federal News Network" become its handle?
  • Rodney BlueMax372 2012/04/03 00:05:21

    Not recently...
    The format itself was launched by Bonneville International, owners of terrestrial-based all-news station WTOP, as FederalNewsRadio.com - the first Internet-only all news station, and the first Internet station to make the jump to terrestrial radio - on February 22, 2000. The programming concept has changed little to this day, except that the Associated Press' All News Radio service originally filled in during the overnight hours, as a complement to WTOP.
    Federal News Radio is one of a few radio stations that originated on the Internet prior to moving onto a traditional broadcasting signal. It first found a home on the radio dial in 2004, on the 1050 kHz frequency licensed to Silver Spring, Maryland; that station was founded in 1946 as beautiful music station WGAY, but had become business radio station WPLC by 2004, when Bonneville bought the station and converted it to Federal News Radio and the WFED call letters.
    When AP All News Radio was terminated, the station began an affiliation with CNN Headline News, which itself was phased out in 2007 by provider Westwood One. In November 2007, the 1050 frequency increased its daytime power from 1 kW to 3.5 kW in order to better reach the government office workers in Washington, D.C. who comprise its core audience.
