Since its inception in 1975

WAIF-FM has been a non-commercial radio station and as such, receives no revenue from advertising.

Which of course means there are no commercials aired on WAIF and we believe this is a GOOD thing!

WAIF also does not receive regular grants nor funding from tax-dollars.

The one source for nearly 100% of the financial support for this radio station - comes from its listeners and underwriters. And the great thing about THAT is that it means the programming on WAIF is beholden to no one - EXCEPT it's listeners!

We hope that YOU will become a member and supporter of WAIF-FM!


When a listener makes a contribution or underwrites a program, that's direct support not only for the ideas or entertainment of that program, but also for the entire concept of the multifaceted programming provided by this radio station. And vitally important is the idea that this programming does not have an outlet in any other area of the broadcast spectrum or in print.


But you CAN support the station now!

In the Spring and Fall, WAIF has it's Annual Memberthons on the air. Listen in to your favorite show - when you're asked to call and make a pledge, please do so!
You can call the studios at 513-749-1444, or 513-961-8900.

Again, this process will be made easier as our website improves.
