WMNF is volunteer-powered, listener-supported, commercial-free radio.
We are WMNF. Mission-driven. Volunteer-powered. Listener-supported. We’re an independent platform committed to activating a connected, compassionate and informed community.
We’re music lovers who are culture seekers.
News junkies who are independent thinkers.
We play the music that influences culture.
We lead conversations that inform and empower.
We enrich the community that we call our home.
And most importantly, we welcome anyone who wants to join in.
Where music, news, and culture collide.
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.
