Try first to hook up a webcam to your computer and stream it to web.
There is a 'zillions' of freewares to make it possible.
Experiment and get 'know how'. Begin send out local places in your town.
Maybe then, you could get local sponsors etc. I did, & are expanding.
BTW: Your request should be posted in Free hosting requests

sopcast.com for windows is great it's a chinese server and you stream at what your upstream bandwidth can handle and the server sends it to everybody whos watching so no limit on how many can watch your stream if you have say 100kb/s upstream and you stream at 50kb only 2 people and watch your stream clearly without it buffering all the time. so this server doesnt do that the bandwidth of the server is used to deliver the stream not yours so it's all good AND FREE!!
i used todo loads of web streaming TV and Music so if you want help pm me
