PORTLAND’S community radio station 3RPC-FM is facing a severe shortage of volunteer presenters, with at least one announcer taking on four programs a week, and others doing three.
“It’s the most unfilled slots I can remember since I’ve been here,” program coordinator Viv Aroin said. The station began its test broadcasts in 1980, making it one of the state’s oldest community-supported stations.
