WVAS is a member-supported non-commercial, educational station featuring news and other programming from National Public Radio and Public Radio International. WVAS began broadcasting on June 15, 1984 from the fifth floor of the Levi Watkins Learning Center. Two years later, the station moved to its current location at Thomas Kilby Hall. WVAS has a signal that spans 18 counties, reaching a total population of more than 651,000.
