Moved to Lynchburg from NYC almost 5 years ago and as a music lover I was thrilled to find WNRN. It is like WNRN was curated to my own personal tastes in music. A great source for new music and a huge asset for Central Virginia. WNRN stacks up with best radio stations in the country. Thank you for all that you do!
