Small Missouri radio station's live stream from Ferguson goes viral

Posted: Updated:
The images coming out of Ferguson, Missouri have left many riveted, but a small, volunteer-run radio station has been key in helping to make that happen.  

The volatile scene that has unfolded since the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown has been broadcast online through a live stream by KARG Argus Radio, a small urban station based in Maplewood, Missouri, not far from Ferguson.  The station is quickly becoming the eyes and ears of what's happening in Ferguson for tens of thousands of people.  

KARG launched one year ago. Its video equipment was meant to live stream concerts, but they started to use it last week to cover the protests in Ferguson when there were concerns about the ability of other media outlets to do so.  One person operates the KARG camera alone on foot.  They're able to maneuver around police roadblocks, getting ground-level footage that other TV stations and major cable networks haven't been able to get.  

The broadcast has been dubbed "I am Mike Brown Live from Ferguson, Missouri," and KARG's Mustafa Hussein says its because that is the sentiment of the community.  He vows KARG will keep broadcasting even if it's at their own peril so that the truth can be seen and heard.

KARG's camera was damaged during one of the protests.  They have been using a borrowed camera, and are looking for donations for a new one.
