broadcasting from the campus of Radford College October 9, 1978. One
year later, when the school became Radford University, our radio
station was re-christened with our current call letters "WVRU" to reflect the change. Now, we're a proud affiliate of Public Radio International (PRI),
who provide our station and the New River Valley with excellent music,
news, and entertainment programming. WVRU is also a member of Virginia
Public Radio (VPR), a news source offering reports on state government. Talented students at Radford University make
up the bulk of our on-air staff playing Adult Alternative, Jazz and
other genres that complement our nationally syndicated programming.
