    88.9 FM (VPM News) - serving Richmond and surrounding areas - is operating at reduced signal strength due to a power failure at the transmitter. While the broadcast remains on back-up auxiliary power, outlying areas may experience a weaker or possibly no signal until power is fully restored.

    Engineers are working to repair the transmitter and return the signal to full strength. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our listening audience in these areas.

    To continue to listen in the meantime - please connect to our online stream for VPM News, on, on the NPR App and on Alexa enabled devices.
