More About WERU’s Philosophy:
Our motto is to be a “voice of many voices” by offering a wide variety of people opportunities to share their experiences, concerns and perspectives with their neighbors over the airwaves and Internet. Our diverse programming is intended to serve the needs of people not fully served by other media, and is intended to support healthy, informed and vibrant communities.
We celebrate listener support as an essential element of our financial sustainability. We likewise celebrate volunteerism as an essential element of the organization’s operations, both broadcast and behind the scenes. Hence “listener supported and volunteer powered.”
We present news and public affairs programming that meets high journalistic standards.
