LPFM Profiles: The Voice of Monona

Our new series "LPFM Profiles" takes a look at the incredible variety of new Low Power FM radio stations in the USA. Today we introduce WVMO Radio - owned and operated by the City of Monona, Wisconsin.

The City of Monona  worked to apply for and create a low-power FM radio station beginning in 2007. The city wanted to add another avenue for its residents and surrounding community members to voice their opinions, stories, interests, and concerns, while at the same time allowing the city an additional opportunity to communicate with the residents of Monona.

WVMO’s mission is to be a 24 hour voice of the Monona area community, including cultural and social issues. They provide broadcast space for creative expression and community involvement, and produce diverse programming representative of Monona and Madison's East Side community.
