|About||WRVO Public Media is your source for NPR News in central and northern NY. Regional news, entertainment, interviews, the latest national stories and more, on-air and online. Find local news, programs, events & station updates on our website and app.|
|Mission||Significant programming about significant issues for significant audiences. Radio that informs, challenges, provokes, broadens, educates and entertains.|
In addition to local news and programming, WRVO operates two additional streams. PRX Remix is heard on our second stream (heard online and with the WRVO app) and features short pieces from the Public Radio Exchange (PRX). This includes found tape or interviews, music reviews and short stories. It's been called the 'best of public radio on shuffle.'
Our third stream brings you international news from the BBC 24 hours a day. Listen online or with the WRVO app anytime to catch up on the news overseas.
All three WRVO streams are available online, or on a mobile device. The WRVO App is free and available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Find it in the Apple Store or Google Play.
