WSLR, Inc. was formed in 2004 to govern the operation of a 100 watt low-power, non-commercial community radio station. Licensed only to nonprofits, low power radio was created during the Clinton Administration to combat media consolidation and bring localism back to the radio dial. WSLR 96.5 LPFM began broadcasting in August 2005 thanks to the hard work of a small group of dedicated volunteers. As a Pacifica affiliate, WSLR’s programming promotes peace, social and economic justice, democracy and sustainability and presents voices often neglected by the mainstream. We embrace diversity and freedom of expression.
WSLR is more than radio. Community events also serve as a public extension of our programming and mission. Through the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center we produce over 60 live concerts a year, host over 35 educational events, and provide low-cost space to like-minded non-profit organizations. Together WSLR+Fogartyville celebrate and promote the creative, cultural and political vitality of the Sarasota-Manatee community.
