History and community

RadioU was launched in 1996 by a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and operates with about a dozen employees and many great volunteers.

RadioU’s non-commercial FM stations provide airtime to other non-profit organizations, host and promote events each year to reinforce positive lifestyle messages among area students, and are active voices for public service in the areas they serve. RadioU also works closely with The HelpLine, an organization that provides prayer and referral services to those in need.

RadioU has NO commercials or advertising, receives NO government funding, and is operated by an independent nonprofit organization. Our monthly operating expenses are covered entirely – 100% – by donations from RadioU’s amazing family of generous listeners!
