Supported by dedicated listeners and staffed largely by volunteer DJs, WFMU is a non-commercial, freeform radio station based in Jersey City, New Jersey. Broadcasting to Northern New Jersey, the New York City Metropolitan area, and the Hudson Valley, WFMU has been on the air since 1958, when it was part of Upsala College in East Orange, NJ.
WFMU’s long history of innovative programming was put to the test when Upsala declared bankruptcy in 1995. WFMU’s staff successfully saved the station by raising funds to purchase its broadcasting license. During this tumultuous period, WFMU survived by establishing a strong foothold in online broadcasting.
After the split with Upsala, WFMU became fully independent, and the station’s license is now held by Auricle Communications, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group managed by current and former WFMU staff members and listeners. The station’s annual budget is currently over $1.9 million, the bulk of which is raised from individual listener contributions. With the help of loans and listener contributions, WFMU purchased a building and relocated to Jersey City in 1998. To this day, WFMU is recognized for its unique programming and as one of the most successful community broadcasters on the internet.
