WUVT-FM is an FCC-licensed non-commercial radio station broadcasting at 6.5 kilowatts to Blacksburg, the Virginia Tech campus and a large surrounding area, including Montgomery County, Christiansburg, Radford, Floyd, Giles, Salem, Pulaski, and Wytheville. All disc jockeys, and most of our staff members, are unpaid volunteers. We are operated by the Educational Media Company at Virginia Tech, and our license is held by Virginia Tech.
While the station mostly comprises student members, community involvement is strongly encouraged. Semi-annual community donations and underwriting from local businesses keep WUVT available as a consistent public service to the community. As a non-commercial educational station, we refrain from commercial advertising. WUVT airs public service announcements twice an hour, every hour, for university student organizations and registered nonprofits.
WUVT's mission is to promote education, understanding, and diversity of music while serving the community as an independent, not-for-profit, student-run radio station. Our goal to provide diverse, eclectic, and educational programming makes us a truly unique organization. The vast majority of music played on WUVT cannot be heard anywhere else on your radio dial.
