WRIR-LP 97.3 FM is a low power FM radio station broadcasting from Richmond, Va. We are a public radio station but in a different sense than most stations in the Southeast. WRIR is
(1) managed entirely by volunteers with the majority being women which is uncommon for the majority of media outlets,
(2) the programs airing on WRIR are produced in our studio by our volunteers who mentor one another to create an environment for learning and empowerment,
(3) the station, by charter, will always be locally-operated and beholden only to our listeners.
As a result, WRIR is the most independent radio station on air in Richmond, VA.
