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!
Dan H., Lynchburg, VA
My whole family supports WNRN. It is practically the only station we listen to. Even our college student, on his Ramen budget, donates monthly. Thank you WNRN.
Tara W., Lynchburg, VA
We have listened and supported WNRN forever. Evenings we used to switch channels for World Cafe — now, we never have to change the channel. Will continue to support this station for the wonderful music, and generous and knowledgeable people who run WNRN. It is our station!

Best music on the radio. Great current songs blended with great older stuff. Dead and Phriends on Saturday must listen show. But you are my go to music station any time of the day.

By far my favorite radio station I have ever listened to. You guys never play a bad song and I continue to grow my music library because of you guys. I absolutely love it!

For the great on-air music, live shows, and community support! Independent radio is crucial to the fabric of the Central Virginia community!
Neil B., Sweet Briar, VA
I grew up around Charlottesville and have listened to WNRN as long as it’s been on the air. Traveling and living in other places, I’ve realized how unique and amazing my hometown radio station is. I still stream it and tell my friends.
