WDAV 89.9, a public radio service of Davidson College and licensed to the Trustees of Davidson College, is a member-supported public radio service providing classical music and cultural arts programming 24 hours each day.

The purpose of WDAV is to provide classical music and cultural arts programming of the highest quality and to promote the activities of local arts organizations and artists of all disciplines. The station is more than a music service. Significant air time and staff resources are devoted to creating "a community of the arts." This is accomplished by broadcasting locally recorded concerts and by promoting the events and activities of area arts organizations through on-air public service announcements, co-sponsorships, ticket-gives and occasional interview features.
