WHRV FM and WHRO FM Coverage and Programming


Public Radio Listeners are Educated & Affluent Citizens

Public radio reaches one of the most educated and affluent audiences in radio. The median household income for listeners is over $78,000.  Sixty-two (62%) have attained at least a bachelor’s degree, including 28% with a graduate or a professional school degree. Listeners are also distinguished by their mindset. They place a high value on creativity, curiosity, and social consciousness and have a strong attachment to nature and the environment. These beliefs are not just abstract ideals, but are manifest in the product and lifestyle choices made by the public media audience.

NPR WHRV FM 89.5 is Eastern Virginia's NPR affiliate, presenting thoughtful public affairs programming during the day, and cutting edge alternative music and jazz in the evenings. That diversity in WHRV’s programming has drawn a growing number of loyal, over-the-air listeners and those who listen online or through other platforms. WHRV 89.5 FM offers an outstanding opportunity to capture a diverse, loyal, discriminating – and growing audience that listens every day.

Classical WHRO FM 90.3 is one of the only premier classical music radio stations in the eastern United States, playing the world’s greatest music around the clock, seven days a week. An excellent opportunity to reach an upscale audience. Listen online
