William Floyd

Operations Manager

Will fell in love with community radio at WOBC, a student-run college radio station in Ohio, where he hosted music programs and served as Engineer and General Manager. In 2012, he joined the Prometheus Radio Project, a nonprofit organization that advocates for community radio stations and led the successful grassroots campaign to pass the Local Community Radio Act in 2010.

At Prometheus, Will guided dozens of community organizations through the FCC application process for new radio licenses. After the FCC issued permits, he collaborated with new Low Power FM radio stations to raise antennas, install transmitters, build studios, and train community members in audio production and radio operations. From 2014-2018, Will managed the construction of transmission and studio facilities for KMRD-LP in Madrid, NM; Sagal Radio in Atlanta, GA; KOGI-LP in Big Pine, CA; WEQY-LP in Saint Paul, MN; KALY-LP in Minneapolis, MN; WFNU-LP in Saint Paul, MN; KUYI-LP in Upper Moencopi, AZ; KISJ-LP in Bisbee, AZ; and KUAV-LP in Winterhaven, CA.

In 2016, Will moved to New Mexico and joined the volunteer staff at KMRD, serving as Program Director and later, Operations Manager. KMRD provides locally-produced music and talk programming to the communities of Madrid, Cerrillos, and rural southern Santa Fe County.

At KSFR, Will oversees the production of locally-produced program and podcasts, the maintenance of broadcast facilities and daily operations. He serves on the boards of the Prometheus Radio Project and KMRD, and as a firefighter with the Madrid Volunteer Fire District of the Santa Fe County Fire Department.
