About WNRN

WNRN is an independent nonprofit music source and radio station based in Charlottesville.

WNRN’s mission is to strengthen communities through music, art and education.

WNRN is not affiliated with any university or governing institution. More than 80% of WNRN’s operating budget comes from listener and underwriting support.

WNRN is a small professional staff assisted by volunteers and student interns.  WNRN volunteers host radio shows, keep the office running and assist us when we’re out in the community at events and festivals.
Our internship program offers students direct experience at a working radio station.  To volunteer or to inquire about our internship program, email volunteer@wnrn.org
