Mission Statement

WRIR airs underrepresented music, news and views in order to provide a platform for cultural diversity in Richmond. In other words, we play what other stations won’t. We are also a true community radio station. This means we are locally owned and, by charter, can never be bought out by any non-local entity. WRIR also represents the community by its many volunteers. WRIR’s FCC license to operate is held by the nonprofit group, Virginia Center for Public Press (VCPP). VCPP is a 501(c)3 organization that’s funded through contributions from listeners, underwriting sponsorships and grants.

Description

WRIR is 100% volunteer powered. We are the largest LPFM in the country (in terms of audience and content creation) operated by passionate volunteers-some pitch in a couple times each year, and others spend 20+ hours each week here at the station. You will volunteer with 200+ people of many cultural, social and economic backgrounds from all over the Richmond area. What brings us together is a belief in truly independent community radio. Tune in to 97.3 FM (or stream on any device at www.wrir.org).
