We're pleased to be Michiana's voice for award-winning National Public Radio® news and locally produced programming. Our listeners are treated to uniquely American sounds of jazz, blues and folk music. They also receive comprehensive world, national and regional news, and the latest information on a variety of topics they care about - everything from health and science to changing technology, business and beyond. WVPE is the area’s premier public radio station. From our humble beginning in 1972 as a student-run broadcasting lab at the Elkhart Area Career Center, we have become the area’s only National Public Radio member station, broadcasting programs for the community that inform, entertain, and inspire.
