Ways to Volunteer

On-air music hosting (WTJU 91.1 FM & WXTJ 100.1 FM)

WTJU 91.1 FM is open to all, and we encourage applicants whose music taste is eclectic and beyond the mainstream.

UVA students can host on WTJU or WXTJ 100.1 FM, our all-student station. Most years, WXTJ accepts new applicants only at the beginning of fall semester.

Podcasting and public affairs

While WTJU’s on-air format is primarily eclectic music, we also air short-form news and human interest pieces.

WTJU also helps people bring their podcast ideas into creation via the Virginia Audio Collective. We provide budding podcasters with studio time & gear, distribution, training workshops, and a peer network of other podcast makers.

If you’re curious about our community and want to tell audio stories, fill out the Volunteer Application!

(No need to include a sample playlist if not applying for a music show.)

Behind-the-Scenes Opportunities

There is a raft of ways to be involved that don’t require hosting an on-air show:

  • Answer phones during pledge drives (Go to the streamlined phone volunteer application)
  • Running sound for live bands
  • Helping with WTJU videos and social media
  • Helping with coding and web content

Training is provided, though certain skill sets or abilities may be required for some positions.

There’ll soon be a streamlined Volunteer Application for phone answerers.

Lots of ways to be involved, fill out the Volunteer Application to get started!
