WUMB Radio's Commitment to Diversity

Diversity not only reflects the community of our listener base, but also a dynamic workspace that fosters creativity and excellence. WUMB strives to not only provide programming that reflects our vastly diverse listener base, from urban to rural and multi-continental, but also the diversity of the staff we employ. Our announcers are encouraged to engage listeners with their own thoughts and stories on the air, and to share information about themselves via their bio pages on our website.

WUMB Radio also employs students from both urban and rural communities in the urban Boston area as well as from states around the country in our year-long work/study program. We have also furthered our commitment to the diversity we find in our community from religion to politics, and to music other than folk/Americana by instituting a student-run, student-programmed online radio station. The channel content can be anything the student chooses, so long as it fits FCC requirements.
