Our History

 

In 2001, the Civic Media Center applied for a low-power FM permit. After years of waiting Gainesville finally got its own community radio station when WGOT-LP began broadcasting in January of 2008. Originally we shared the 94.7 frequency with two religious stations and could only broadcast for a few hours each day. In 2017 WGOT moved to its own channel — 100.1 — and began 24/7 operations.

Our Mission

  • Take back the public airwaves by providing a fresh, engaging, and empowering approach to news, entertainment, cultural and educational programming.
  • Challenge listeners with factual national, state, and local news from a fresh perspective, and to provide objective information on issues critical to you.
  • Become a public forum for citizen debate and greater democratic participation.
  • Listen to our audience as we decide new avenues to take as an organization.
  • Celebrate our community by highlighting new voices in the arts, especially local musicians, artists, authors, and performers.
  • Dare to be courageous, outrageous, boldly eclectic, unabashedly quirky, and unremittingly innovative.
  • Be the loud, clear, honest, grassroots radio voice of Gainesville.

“[People] in earnest have no time to waste in patching fig-leaves for the naked truth.”
