MISSION:  Our mission is to create radio programming that cultivates Pagoda-radio WPVMFMdialogue, informs, entertains and raises local, regional and global community awareness.

VISION:WPVM’s vision is to be the trusted voice of an informed Asheville community. A community resource that is a means to build support for the arts, culture and history of Asheville and the surrounding community through civic participation.

CORE VALUES: We value a courteous exchange of differing perspectives, ideas, and information.  We value a community that is a cultural crossroads with opportunities for creative expression. We value civil discourse. We value good stewardship of relationships and organizational assets.

T2.5-Fada WPVMFMhe New WPVM is Asheville’s truly independent  hometown radio, which means we create all of our local programming entirely by volunteer show hosts and dj’s. By FCC law we are not allowed any commercial advertisements.

WPVM  receives no financial support other than from our underwriters, fundraisers and donations from our listeners. Our ability to stay on the air is due to financial support of our listeners and we thank you for you financial support and faith in us. In a time when the main stream media is owned by just a few conglomerates, truly independent media is a rare thing. If you enjoy our programming and our effort to bring independent  and thought provoking news and entertainment, please consider making a tax deductible financial contribution. WPVM is truly a labor of love by the Board of Directors and  our volunteers, and we hope you will help us continue this important work.

Hi! Love your station and listen all day while at work. I work for a non-profit and wanted to see if you have special rates for folks like us to advertise. If so, if you could send them my way we would be very grateful. Carry on doing what you do best!
