The mission of WBAI is to promote cultural diversity and pluralistic community expression, freedom of the press and serve as a forum for various viewpoints and to maintain an independent funding base.

From a programming standpoint, WBAI is definitely not easy-listening. We all know what this means. We are charged with the responsibility to provide radio that informs, educates and entertains New York with a critical approach to politics, art, music, literature, health, and culture. We are not radio that is just on in the background. We require a commitment from our listeners; we actively challenge you, but we engage you. You are part of the process, the most important part of the broadcasting equation.
