Celebrate 50 Years of WVTF and Radio IQ
In 2023, WVTF is marking 50 years on the air and as an NPR affiliate.
Take a look at our station's history, photos of our events so far and ways you can join in the celebration! We still have plenty to come this year so stay tuned!
WVTF and RADIO IQ's 50th Anniversary celebrations included a very special event in Charlottesville. On May 19th, Roben Farzad hosted a special Full Disclosure Live with CBS Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan as the guest. We also hosted an Art Open House at our Roanoke Broadcast Center on May 19th. Enjoy photos from both events!
Key dates and events as the station evolved from an early NPR affiliate to a network of signals and programs covering two-thirds of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
