From the small hole-in-the-wall studio on Winnebago to our multi-studio building on Bedford, YOU are the ray of light that has made South Central Wisconsin’s award-winning community radio possible.
Now, more than ever, we need to step back from the Spend! Spend! Spend!, You Need, You Need, You Need mentality of commercial media and focus on what serves us best. What nourishes our souls, what challenges our beliefs, what informs our actions.
Because of you, WORT has served many of these functions for over 40 years. Thank you for making this possible–you are amazing!
