COMMUNITY OWNED : The goal of the station is to give Monona and other neighboring community members a place to share stories and interests while giving the City a way to reach its residents. WVMO has become the "coolest little station in the nation" with a broad local listener base as well as a large online following.
LOCALLY PROGRAMMED : WVMO's mission is to be the 24-hour Voice of Monona. The station provides broadcast space for diverse, creative, hyper-locally focused programming. Community members host shows, playing everything from jazz to progressive rock, complemented by a base of Americana music curated and scheduled in Monona.
VOLUNTEER DRIVEN : Why do we volunteer? Because we love radio and our community! The City of Monona's Director of Community Media is the only paid member of the WVMO team.
HISTORY OF WVMO: The City of Monona worked to apply for and create a low-power FM radio station beginning in 2007. With the help of top notch equipment maintained by top notch volunteers, we went on air for the first time in August of 2015
