The City of Monona worked to apply for and create a low-power FM radio station beginning in 2007. The city wanted to add another avenue for its residents and surrounding community members to voice their opinions, stories, interests, and concerns, while at the same time allowing the city an additional opportunity to communicate with the residents of Monona.
WVMO’s mission is to be a 24 hour voice of the Monona area community, including cultural and social issues. We provide broadcast space for creative expression and community involvement, and produce diverse programming representative of Monona and the East Side community. We aim to engage, educate, empower and entertain our listeners.
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!
Do You Have an Idea for a Great Radio Program?
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're going to need help from people with all types of interests. If you have an idea for a local radio program, we want to hear from you!
