Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton and the Monroe County Commissioners proclaim WFHB Community Radio Day

On Monday, January 4, 1993, WFHB began broadcasting at 91.3 in south central Indiana. As a music station, we’ve offered an eclectic mix of local, regional and international music, including live in-studio performances for the past 25 years. Fourteen years ago, WFHB’s News Department began the only half-hour local news radio programming in Indiana. The News Department supports 23 Public Affairs programs and has received 71 awards, including 28 first place awards, from the Society of Professional Journalists for excellence in news reporting.

On Tuesday, January 2, 2018, Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton signed a document acknowledging January 4 as WFHB Community Radio Day. Today, January 3, the Monroe County Commissioners followed suit, acknowledging the important contributions of WFHB to our community.

Our success and longevity as a non-profit serving south central Indiana is due to the dedicated work of a small staff and over 150 consistently engaged volunteers. Through a volunteer-powered focus on the community, WFHB provides an open forum for the exchange and discussion of ideas and issues, and to celebrate and increase the local cultural diversity. WFHB envisions a sustainable, diverse, participatory multimedia service that contributes to an entertained, informed, and
empowered community.

We appreciatively thank Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton and Monroe County Commissioners Julie Thomas, Amanda Barge, and Patrick Stoffers for their acknowledgement. We thank all of our supporters and volunteers for bringing south central Indiana 25 years of community radio.
