WPVM 103.7 is Asheville’s first community radio station and we present the arts and culture of the region and share it with the world.
Our mission is to create community connections through programming that informs and entertains. The station gives a much needed voice to local artists, activists, local businesses and nonprofits from our state of the art broadcast studio high above Wall Street in downtown Asheville.
