Kathy, and her husband Lou Kolb, share a love of local news and community. Both are long time licensed amateur radio operators; Lou is WA3MIX (Extra Class), Kathy is WB3KRN (Advanced Class). Together they share decades of listening to shortwave and scanner radio traffic. Lou has more than 40 years commercial broadcast radio experience including stops at WLYC (1970s), WSQV (1980s), WWPA, KISS-FM (1990-2000s) and WBZD (2015 - forward). He has witnessed first hand the downsizing of radio newsrooms, staff and time.
The question in today's mobile phone society is, "How will a population in a geographic area remain connected with its surroundings when they have the world at their fingertips?". Further questions include:
- How will Community Groups, Clubs and Churches get the word out about their activities and events?
- How can people share important news and information quickly and freely in an area?
- How will people unite and work together quickly in a local emergency?
From yard sales and community events to traffic news, we offer NorthcentralPa.com as a solution to the Lycoming and Surrounding Counties.
