WRYR-LP 97.5 FM radio was created as a project of the South Arundel Citizens for Responsible Development (SACReD) as a creative means of reaching out to the Chesapeake Bay communities. As one of the first licensed Low Power FM (LPFM) radio stations, WRYR-LP began broadcasting to the Mid-Chesapeake Bay region in Spring 2002. Ownership was transferred to WRYR Community Radio, Inc. in July 2007. WRYR-LP transmits a 100-watt monophonic signal located at 97.5 MHz/Channel 248 on the FM band. WRYR-LP also streams it broadcast worldwide on the Internet.
WRYR-LP is operated at a grass roots level with a volunteer staff, much donated equipment, and funding contributed by businesses and individuals throughout the communities we serve. WRYR-LPs programming reflects and celebrates the diverse and distinct character of our community, and includes information on issues of local interest such as the environment and smart growth, local news, music and entertainment, health and lifestyle information, and other programming of interest to the eastern and western shore communities served by the station. WRYR-LP is a non-profit, non-commercial LPFM radio station, supported by its listeners the Maryland Chesapeake Bay communities of Anne Arundel, Calvert, Queen Anne, Talbot, Dorchester, and Caroline Counties, as well as Marylands capital city of Annapolis. The call letters, WRYR, reflect the stations motto: "We aRe Your Radio".
