The central pillar of Cincinnati Public Radio’s local network—accounting for the lion’s share of its 250,000 listeners each week—WVXU is among the most reliable, tried-and-true media institutions in our region. We at 91.7 FM don’t take this responsibility lightly—we take Cincinnati Public Radio’s mission statement at face value, always striving to be a “trusted, independent source of journalism, music and culture empowering a vibrant, engaged and informed community.”
You can rest assured that at WVXU, we hold ourselves to the strictest standards of journalistic excellence, double and triple-checking our news content for accuracy and harmful bias—and the rest of our content for interest and entertainment value! WVXU is a stimulating resource for new ideas and understanding and Cincinnati’s gold standard for credible, ethical, principled reporting and commentary.
WVXU helps the public stay informed and cultivate a deeper awareness and appreciation of global events, ideas, and cultures through world-class programming. Harnessing the national and international news resources of our partners at NPR, American Public Media, PRX, and the BBC (to name just a few), as well as our team of award-winning radio journalists, WVXU keeps listeners in touch with events in our backyard and over the horizon. We present the broadest possible scope of content, from near and far, without sacrificing our important local on-the-ground perspective.
Cincinnati Public Radio strives to engage your mind, enrich your life, and lift your spirit. We work hard every day to make good on our mantra, which you’ve surely heard before on the air: “Connecting You to a World of Ideas.” With the support of our loyal and devoted listener base—from all walks of life—we will be for a long time to come.
