The mission of WDIY 88.1 FM is to engage the Lehigh Valley community through a wide-ranging exchange of news, music, arts, and culturally diverse information.
WDIY is a listener-supported public radio station and NPR station based in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania which has been broadcasting since 1995. We serve the community of eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey with award-winning NPR programs like Morning Edition and All Things Considered along with locally-produced programs exploring political, financial, and cultural topics in the Lehigh Valley.
In addition to news and public affairs, WDIY is also home to an eclectic mix of music programs. Classical, folk, jazz, blues, indie rock, world music, and more can be heard on WDIY every week. We are committed to providing our listeners with the most wide-ranging mix of stimulating music for the community we serve--a mix of music that isn't available on any other Lehigh Valley radio stations.
WDIY operates on a unique community model that relies on over 120 dedicated volunteers, including over 90 volunteer on-air hosts who work to bring the station's programming to listeners year-round. Recently, our community-driven focus on the arts was recognized by the Allentown Arts Commission with the 2019 Art Ovation Award for Outstanding Service to the Arts.
The station is licensed to the Lehigh Valley Community Broadcasters Association, Inc., an accredited 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The largest--and most reliable--source of support for the station comes from member contributions. All membership donations made to WDIY are tax-deductible.
