Charlottesville radio station WTJU 91.1 FM is making some changes to its program. The radio station put into effect a new programming schedule last Monday.
From 4 p.m. until 6 p.m., drivers on their way home will hear folk and roots music. Evening classical will run from 6-8 p.m. The station will provide a talk show called "Sound Board," which focuses on connecting Charlottesville to the world and that begins at 9 a.m.. The station wants to bring in the community along with is new programming.
"[We are] trying to see ourselves not just as a radio station but as a community media center that's sort of a community organizing center; a community resource that also runs a radio station," said Nathan Moore, WTJU 91.1 General Manager.
WTJU 91.1 is funded mainly by donations and is working towards becoming more engaged and involved in the community.
Their next fundraiser will be in September featuring jazz music.
