At WVMO, we aim to engage, educate, empower & entertain our listeners!
The goal of the station is to give Monona and other neighboring community members a place to voice opinions, stories, interests and concerns while giving the City a way to reach its residents. WVMO has become the "coolest little station in the nation" with a broad local listener base as well as a large online following.
WVMO's mission is to be the 24-hour Voice of Monona. The station provides broadcast space for diverse, creative, hyper-locally focused programming. Community members host shows, playing everything from jazz to progressive rock, complemented by a base of Americana music curated and scheduled in Monona.
EVERYONE involved with WVMO is a VOLUNTEER! Why do we volunteer? Because we love radio and our community! The City of Monona's Director of Community Media is the only paid member of the WVMO team.

HISTORY OF WVMO
The City of Monona worked to apply for and create a low-power FM radio station beginning in 2007. With the help of top notch equipment maintained by top notch volunteers, we went on air for the first time in August of 2015.
WVMO is a truly local radio station. All citizens in and around Monona are invited to experience radio and experience the City of Monona. WVMO is powered by volunteers, so we need help with all types of projects.
How Did "The Voice of Monona" Get Its Name?
A call letter contest to name our new low-power FM radio station was held, and the winning entry -- WVMO -- "The Voice of Monona" -- was submitted by Monona resident Mark Buffat. Buffat's entry was chosen over more than 100 entries. Congratulations, Mark, and a big thanks to all those who submitted contest entries!
