About us

WORT 89.9 FM is a listener-sponsored community radio station, broadcasting from 118 S. Bedford St. in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. WORT offers a whole host of programming made possible by listener sponsors.


Our volunteers and staff provide quality programming and services to a broad spectrum of the community through:
  • promotion of communication, education, entertainment, and understanding by providing a forum for both the discussion of public issues and the expansion of musical and cultural experience;
  • facilitation of community expression and provision of community access to the airwaves for the purpose of sharing music, culture, news, and information;
  • challenge of the cultural and intellectual assumptions of our listeners through unique and diverse programming;
  • orientation towards the audience with concern for those under-represented by other media.

WORT is committed to radio programming with a human perspective—respecting all peoples and their environments.
