Who are we? Quite simply, we are WMPR 90.1 Radio, the “Voice of the Community.” It’s been that way for over 30 years. Dating back to 1983, we began as a small radio station around the Tougaloo, Mississippi area. Our format was gospel and blues in the early days and we played to a much smaller audience. Later, we were able to build on our listening audience by hiring more DJs and featuring more local talent. It became apparent to us that we were filling a void in the community that had been untouched. As Mississippi is hailed as the “birthplace of the blues,” and blues music comes out of gospel, there weren’t many stations catering to the demand for both genres. Thus, WMPR Radio Station was born and it has been growing stronger every since.
WMPR offers a range of programming tailored to fit the listening pleasure of a diverse audience. There is something for everyone everyday of the week. No matter the age, gender or genre preference, you are sure to find a program that suits your appetite. We also offer talk show styled programming that caters to those who have a need for informative style programs. There’s something for the health, wealth, and spiritual minded audience.
WMPR offers our listeners a more diverse range of genres than most radio stations. We also have talk show programming purposely scheduled during peak listening times so that our repeat listeners have an opportunity to catch their favorite show at its normal time. Whether you crave a healthy choice or you need to increase your wealth, WMPR strives to provide programming choices to satisfy your listening appetite. There’s something for everyone daily and often. We pride ourselves on being the “Voice of the Community” by offering spot programming for announcements of upcoming events that are taking place in and around the Jackson Metropolitan area and the state of Mississippi.
