WASR MISSION STATEMENT : COMMUNITY MATTERS
At WASR, we believe that community matters. As an independently owned and operated radio station, we are committed to the well-being of the community in which we live and work.
Our Mission is to help cultivate our local community by bringing together the diverse individuals and organizations that make New Hampshire so vibrant.
Our Mission drives our approach to programming:
We provide information, entertainment, and inspiration aimed at connecting our community members through inclusive programming that offers:
- Balanced perspectives and accurate information on local issues.
- Engaging musical playlists from a wide range of genres.
- Unique voices and stories of the people living and working in New Hampshire.
- Opportunities to give back to our community.
Our Mission drives our approach to Community Relationships:
We believe in serving those that serve us, and so we are committed to supporting our veterans, our local charitable organizations, and our elder community through our programming, events, and online resources.
We believe that when our community learns, so do we, and so we are committed to developing educational experiences for area students.
We believe that when our community flourishes, so do we, and so we are committed to helping independently owned businesses succeed through our community-focused approach to advertising.
We believe that when our community has fun, so do we, and so we are committed to covering the cultural and entertainment events that enrich our community throughout the year.
