About Us

Germantown Community Radio (WGGT-LP) is a community radio station that can be heard on 92.9 FM (noon Wednesday to midnight Sunday) and online at http://gtownradio.com (24/7). We are located in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. Our mission is to be an exceptional outlet for local content, community news, and diverse spectrum of music. We strive to broadcast sounds, ideas, and talk not found on mainstream media. It is our belief that a strong community is one that offers a platform for neighbors, community members and listeners to share news and generate discussion on topics that impact our neighborhood, our city and our world.

The mission of WGGT-LP is to amplify the voices of the people in our listening area and encourage community access to the airwaves. WGGT-LP will follow the same general principles that unite all community broadcasters, including:

  • Promote harmony and diversity in contributing to a cohesive, inclusive and culturally diverse community;
  • Pursue the principles of democracy, access and equity, especially to people and issues under-represented in other media;
  • Enhance the diversity of programming choices available to the public and present programs which expand the variety of viewpoints available to media audiences in Philadelphia;
  • Maintain independence and autonomy in programming decisions as well as in editorial and management decisions;
  • Support and develop local arts, music and culture in the station’s programming;
  • Involve community members as media producers; to that end, offer radio production training opportunities for community members
