Central Vermont Community Radio (CVCR) is the new non-profit managing the independent Vermont community radio station of WGDR, Plainfield/WGDH, Hardwick. The station’s mission remains committed to providing a forum for cultivating social justice, stewardship of the natural world, and the independent arts.
Through the presentation of diverse music; cultural, news, and public affairs programming and production, CVCR intends to continue to provide the residents of central & northern Vermont (and beyond) the unique opportunity to hear programs developed by local community members; that advocate for the natural world, that advocate for and educate others about underrepresented and disaffected peoples, that provide a forum for community building and that provide a safe space for fostering cultural literacy. This type of programming is not available elsewhere to residents of the listening area.
We acknowledge that WGDR/WGDH is located and broadcasts across the traditional land of the Abenaki Peoples past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.
WGDR/WGDH is the soundtrack of social justice, environmentalism, multiculturalism, and responsible community action in Central Vermont. By being a listener, and contributing to this courageous broadcast, you become part of this transformative action.
WGDR/WGDH gives voice to cultures of rigorous inquiry, collaboration, and life-long learning. When you invest in WGDR, you become a community builder.
WGDR/WGDH is programmed by individuals who take imaginative and responsible action in the world through community radio — your community radio.
WGDR/WGDH fosters a culture of diversity in programming and content, governance, management, practices, and policies and shall bring together people of diverse backgrounds. The CVCR board, staff, programmers, and volunteers will be reflective of our diverse community, and as a station embrace equity, inclusion and diversity as powerful elements that make our station better.
