46 years of handmade, one-of-a-kind, diverse, quirky, weird, wonderful, community radio. WORT.
We’re celebrating 46 years of partnering with the best listeners in radio. WORT volunteers bring you 160 hours of music, news, and talk every week that you won’t find anywhere else and your generosity makes it possible. Thank you!
Your donation means we can break radio’s unwritten rules. We don’t stick to one genre of music. We place no restrictions on what our hosts cover or who they interview. Our award-winning news reporters show up in places where other reporters don’t venture.
