About WMNF

wmnf-lobby

WMNF first went on the air in September, 1979 thanks to the hard work of a small group of dedicated volunteers who went door-to-door raising money for Florida’s first community radio station.

The call letters stand for: Member-sponsored Non-commercial FM.

Radio with a mission

WMNF is a listener-supported community radio station that celebrates cultural diversity and is committed to equality, peace and economic justice.

WMNF provides broadcasts and other forums with a grassroots local emphasis, that promote creative, musical and political vitality.

Radio with values

WMNF advocates for peace, social and environmental justice through independent media and programming neglected by the mainstream. We embrace diversity, tolerance of others’ opinions, and freedom of expression. WMNF celebrates and promotes the creative, cultural and political vitality of the local community.

Radio with a vision

The force that drives this organization is its sense of values, and therefore WMNF provides programming that is consistent with those values.

Our music, arts, and cultural programming cover a wide spectrum of expression from traditional to experimental, reflecting the diverse cultures we serve. We strive to foster an appreciation of music and cultures we serve. We strive to foster an appreciation of music and culture that is not generally available to listeners in the Tampa Bay area.

Radio with a message

Our news and public affairs programming emphasize controversial, neglected, and non-mainstream points of view on important local as well as national or world issues, illuminating our values particularly regarding peace, human rights and environmentalism.

We provide access to the airways for individuals and organizations that support our mission. The station provides a forum for the gathering, exchange and transmission of ideas in a cooperative environment that is respectful of each individual’s cultural or political perspective.

Community events also serve as a public extension of our programming and mission.

We are committed to the values expressed by our mission, especially as they relate to issues involving the various ethnic groups living in our community, women, the economically disadvantaged or challenged, and other groups who may be disenfranchised in our society.

We offer safe haven for expression by members of these groups, regardless of their social status, race, gender or sexual orientation. By our activities hope to promote peace, goodwill and a sense of community beyond the walls of this radio station.

Radio for the rest of us

WMNF continues to be volunteer-powered and listener-sponsored, providing the listening community with eclectic music as well as non-mainstream news, views and public affairs programming. Thanks to all the wonderful WMNF volunteers, staff, board of directors and more than 10,500 listener-sponsors!

WMNF is a 70,000 watt non-commercial, listener supported community radio station, licensed to the Nathan B. Stubblefield Foundation, a non-profit organization established solely to operate WMNF. WMNF is a section 501(c)3 charitable organization. All gifts and donations are tax deductible in accordance with the law.

In Kind Donors

Are you interested in being a WMNF In Kind donor?

WMNF’s is supported in many ways by our community, and we very much appreciate the in-kind donations that we receive from businesses and non-profit organizations whose missions mesh with ours. This happy interactive web of benevolent action and activism makes our community a better place to live.

There are a few kinds of In Kind donors: Marathon Food Sponsors are the kind folks who feed our hungry volunteers while they are hard at work raising money for WMNF, and Chance Drawing Gift Sponsors provide gift certificates and other goodies that WMNF can give to all the wonderful people who provide support during the multitude of events held year round.

Please contact Miss Julie at 813-238-8001, x100 or missjulie@wmnf.org if you would like to be a WMNF In Kind Donor.

Thank you for mentioning 88.5FM when frequenting these businesses.  It helps them see the value of partnership with Community Radio.
