As we approach the Thanksgiving season, WVIA thanks our generous members who make possible our non-profit public service mission. Your gifts enable our region to better understand the world through award-winning NPR enjoy the arts and our quality of life with classical jazz and contemporary music, concerts highlighting regional performers, and other favorite programming.

We look forward to thanking you during our fall membership drive starting November 5. Since our summer drive fell a little short of the goal, we’re counting on 200 new members in November, along with 400 renewing members with gifts of any amount helping us reach a goal of 93-thousand dollars as quickly as possible. You can help us get a head start with your online donation now at Or we’ll be happy to take your call starting November 5.

If you believe, as we do, that our society is enhanced when people have access to diverse perspectives, presented in a balanced way and free from commercial influence, please join our membership family. And thank you for making public radio possible on WVIA FM.
