WTJU’s Mission

WTJU enriches the culture of Virginia and extends the educational mission of UVa by bringing together diverse individuals and communities through exceptional music and conversation.


As the first FM college radio station in Virginia, WTJU was built to provide a unique music service to UVA and the Charlottesville community. Since its founding, WTJU has been permeated by a free-spirited ethos of innovation and experimentation, sustained by generations of WTJU hosts.

As WTJU looks toward its future, we would do well to maintain that ethos of innovation and experimentation – not just in our content, but also in our technology, organization, education & engagement, and off-air programming. Building on WTJU’s achievements over the last decade and recognizing ongoing changes in the media landscape, we must continue to reimagine what “radio” will mean in the years to come.

Borrowing from the University’s strategic plan, WTJU should strive not simply to be great, but also to be good. Excellence in music curation, radio broadcasting, podcasts, concerts, and educational programs are all necessary, but they are not sufficient. We must strive for equity in our operations and nurture a culture of inclusivity that embraces the full spectrum of human attributes. We must nurture relationships and expand involvement, such that WTJU consistently creates programming that is of, by, and for the communities we serve.

In pursuing these aims, WTJU will serve as a model of what a public media organization can be – a convener and nourisher of a music-loving community in which everyone feels a sense of belonging, connection, and meaning.

As a premiere source of music, WTJU will enrich the lives of people of all backgrounds, deepen aesthetic enjoyment, and increase the pleasure of living in a culturally diverse and thriving community.

As a hub of media creation, WTJU will contribute to human flourishing and community building, helping people connect with and understand one another and providing the means to actively participate in the cultural life of our community.

Station History

Founded in 1955 and on-air since 1957, WTJU began as an educational radio station centered around classical music. Today, WTJU continues its mission of education and community engagement encompassing four main genres of music (classical, jazz, folk, and rock), as well as community stories.

Check out this brief overview of WTJU’s history.
