The mission of WDIY as a public radio station is to engage the Lehigh Valley community through a wide-ranging exchange of music, arts, news 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 January, 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 anywhere else in the Lehigh Valley.
WDIY’s unique community model relies on over 120 dedicated volunteers, including over 90 on-air hosts who work to bring the station's programming to listeners year-round. Recently, WDIY was the recipient of the 2019 Art Ovation Award for Outstanding Service to the Arts by the Allentown Arts Commission.
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.
