Chapel Hill & Carrboro’s Community Radio Station

OUR MISSION:   Created in 1997 to produce the largest public art event in Carrboro, the Public Gallery of Carrboro uses community media and the arts to educate, inspire, and entertain the diverse populations of Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and nearby areas.   To achieve its mission The Public Gallery of Carrboro operates WCOM-LP, a community radio station, which educates citizens in media production and provides the needed facilities, entertains local residents with music and talk programming not available in mainstream media, cultivates local arts and music, and facilitates the exchange of cultural and intellectual ideas with particular regard for local residents who are overlooked or under-represented in the access to media.

WCOM community radio is based in downtown Carrboro, North Carolina.  Broadcasting since 2004, WCOM offers locally produced, volunteer-driven programming using a 100-watt over-the-air signal on 103.5 FM.  The station is regularly voted high in the “Best of the Triangle” annual ballots, in 2018 winning in the Best Local Flavor finalist behind WUNC and alongside MIX 101.5.  We’re proud of out listeners, supporters and radio Hosts!  We celebrated our 15th Annniversary in 2019.

WCOM (dba) Public Gallery of Carrboro is incorporated as a non-profit in North Carolina and organized under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Our physical location is in front of the ArtsCenter, 300-G East Main St, Carrboro NC 27510.

Our mailing address is PO Box 475, Carrboro NC 27510
