WOMR – How we started, how we’ve grown, and where we’re headed

With WOMR Board President Ira Wood
Back in 1976 a small band of radio visionaries was inspired to create an  independent station in what many considered the outermost reaches of the contiguous United States, Provincetown, Massachusetts, a small fishing village with a notorious reputation for freedom. Today that freedom is alive and well on the air-waves and WOMR (Outer Most Radio) is one of the nation’s oldest and most successful community stations…defined as radio that is non-commercial, locally oriented, programmed, and supported. While the national media has become corporatized and pre-packaged for mass audiences, WOMR remains the voice of our unique corner of the world, dedicated to creating community through media. Whether you listen to the news on Fridays, jazz in the afternoon, or the Grateful Dead at night; whether you’re a connoisseur of the opera or a fan of our great local bands, WOMR reflects your life because the DJ’s are your neighbors. Come listen to our story.
