WKCR exists to preserve and share music, the arts, and history with listeners in the New York metro area and beyond, curating programming that pushes boundaries while maintaining an eye to historical and artistic value, regardless of commercial significance.


WKCR will continue a pursuit of artistic exploration that is mindful of historical precedent. We will maintain community-loved programming while continuing to be a space for student involvement in the current musical, artistic, and journalistic landscape.
