WORT's FM signal reaches a roughly 50-mile radius around Madison. In early 2006, the station began webcasting all of its programming in both high quality (96K) and low quality (32K) streams. WORT also maintains an archive of recent news and public affairs programs available for podcast, download, or stream.
WORT mission statement
<blockquote>WORT-FM is a non-commercial, listener sponsored, member controlled community radio station broadcasting to south central Wisconsin. WORT volunteers and staff provide quality programming and services to a broad spectrum of the community through:
promotion of communication, education, entertainment, and understanding by providing a forum for both the discussion of public issues and the expansion of musical and cultural experience;
facilitation of community expression and provision of community access to the airwaves for the purpose of sharing music, culture, news, and information;
challenge of the cultural and intellectual assumptions of our listeners through unique and diverse programming;
orientation towards the audience with concern for those under-represented by other media.
WORT is committed to radio programming with a human perspective - respecting all peoples and their environments.</blockquote>
