HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - The city of Hobbs has launched a new, low-powered radio station aimed at giving residents updates, emergency alerts and general information.

The Hobbs News-Sun reports (https://goo.gl/xdR5B2) that KHBX 99.3 FM will provide information to residents within a 4.7-square mile area

Ron Roberts, director of the city’s information technology department, says he began working on the station in the basement of city hall about a year ago. The city says the station received a low-power FM radio license in January.

The station will have no music or paid commercial advertising, only changes to city ordinances and services or upcoming, city hosted events, emergency alerts as well as weather reports from the National Weather Service.
