Contributions from our audience are the largest source of funding and support activities like new initiatives, long-term investigative projects, and outstanding daily reporting.

The station airs news and information content 24 hours per day, seven days per week via four FM signals; WUOM 91.7 FM in Ann Arbor/Detroit, WFUM 91.1 FM in Flint, WRSX 91.3 FM in Port Huron and WVGR 104.1 FM in Grand Rapids, and online at

About Real Estate Donations

Michigan Radio partners with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to process real estate donations to benefit Michigan Radio. Our program takes any property type (land, homes, commercial) in any location so long as there is equity. Even if you owe back taxes, have a mortgage balance, or deferred maintenance, it's no problem. We will pay off all loans, liens, commissions owned and pay all closing costs. If you have a real estate asset that is costing you money or not being utilized, donating it is a great way to give back and you may even claim a significant tax deduction!
