Spectrum 23.9 is the first online radio station created by Radio for a Cause, and launched September of 2018! Radio for a Cause , a non-for-profit, was created in early 2016 by John Graham who wanted to make a positive impact in the community of Fort Wayne. Graham is a 2011 recipient of the Autism Society of Indiana’s Self Advocacy award. Radio broadcasting, something Graham has been passionate about since high school, has helped connect with individuals outside of his social zone. The mission behind starting an online radio station was to start a community-wide radio station that would both empower and give individuals with disabilities a chance to learn about broadcasting.
In a community-wide contest lead by Graham, Spectrum 23.9 was one of the selected finalists that was submitted to us by contest winner, David Lee, who thought of the name “The Spectrum Online Radio.”
