In a world of prepackaged programming, listener-supported public radio provides a crucial independent source of music, news and information.
Over the years, WFIT has critically outgrown its current space. Our studio space and production facilities do not come close to meeting our minimum needs - and that makes it a challenge to produce quality programming.
Over 25 devoted, committed volunteers -- duct tape and faith -- are what have kept WFIT up and running every day.
WFIT is now building a green radio station, and it's nearing completion. This exciting move will help us grow and improve on what we do best: Build and connect the community.
