Help Arlington Independent Media Survive
In March, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Arlington Independent Media (AIM) was forced to suspend all revenue producing activities, like media production classes, camps, facility rentals and commercial production work, causing us to lose essential streams of income for the organization. Even in the face of these challenges, AIM remains committed to its core mission of providing the people access to media education and production technology so they may produce, independent radio and television for the community. Now we need your help to survive.
Since 1982, AIM has continuously provided media production equipment, facilities, training, and access to a basic cable television channel to the community. Our members use their skills to produce powerful local media content that highlights the people, places, organizations, businesses and events in our community. Our video programming can be found in Arlington County on the two cable television channels we operate, Comcast channel 69 and Verizon channel 38, and streamed live at www.ArlingtonMedia.org. In addition, AIM is the home to WERA-LP - 96.7FM, Arlington’s community radio station, which can be heard at 967FM or streamed live at WERA.FM
AIM's facility, located in the Clarendon section of Arlington, is equipped with media-creation tools including a three-camera television studio, an audio production studio, portable audio and video equipment, editing facilities, a computer lab, and more. All available to the public so that they can bring news, information, entertainment and important preparedness information, to the community.
