Asheville FM is nonprofit, volunteer-driven, community radio at its best. We offer a diversity of programming as diverse as the community we serve. That includes community journalists producing hyper-focused local news in both English and in Spanish; talk shows that run the gamut from politics to pet care; and the most eclectic freeform mix of music that you can hear – from DJs with a scholarly appreciation for the genres they represent. All of this is from a community of passionate volunteers who want to give the microphone to other members of the community who don’t have the opportunity in other media outlets.
And, Asheville FM is more than just a radio station we are nonprofit with the mission to impact our community in positive ways with services like youth & community podcasting boot camps, a live performance studio bringing you local musicians and touring bands, and partnerships with other organizations to bring attention to local musicians, artist, activists and the movers and shakers of Asheville.
