Baton Rouge Community Radio WHYR 96.9 FM is hosting its annual pledge drive from December 1, 2020 to December 3, 2020 to raise funds for station operations in 2021.
Baton Rouge Community Radio’s mission is to be an open voice to inform, connect, amplify, and entertain the diverse communities of Baton Rouge. Our station continues to broadcast unique and relevant programming on the airwaves throughout our city and beyond. As a volunteer-led, community-supported organization, Baton Rouge Community Radio is asking for the community’s support this year during our annual pledge drive.
Baton Rouge Community Radio features diverse, locally produced programming. Our talk programming informs listeners on important community issues including Metro Council votes, candidates for local office, and special events. Our music shows feature local musicians and a variety of genres including jazz, blues, Cajun, zydeco, and hip hop.
Baton Rouge Community Radio amplifies what is best about Baton Rouge. We highlight the regional arts scene and hand the mic to the singer-songwriter community. Every week you hear the latest on high school, Southern, and LSU sports. We feature local music from Baton Rouge blues and Southern soul to New Orleans brass band and Louisiana Hayride Western swing.
Baton Rouge Community Radio brings fresh perspectives to the local airwaves. We continue to be the only local radio outlet for programming such as Democracy Now!, Ralph Nader Radio Hour, and State of Belief.
Support community radio this holiday season by pledging your support during our on-air pledge drive beginning December 1st, or make a secure, online donation at http://whyr.org/support/ now.
