Life 103.1 WLHC-FM serves our community and its families and businesses, focusing on that which makes Life special in the Heart of Carolina. Life 103.1 is committed to filtering out the noise and bringing to our listeners the sounds that speak to the heart and to the mind. Their priority, therefore, is accurate news reporting, quality entertainment, a variety of music, and information that defines and affirms all that is good about Life in the Heart of Carolina.

Tune in or live stream The Aaron Keck Show M-F afternoons - now featuring local music from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm!
WCOM-FM 103.5 creates music and talk hand made in Carrboro for the Triangle and the world. Now in its 13th year, WCOM is an all-volunteer community radio station serving Carrboro and Chapel Hill over the air and every place else through live streaming. They have no format; each of WCOM’s shows reflect the interests and knowledge of our volunteer hosts.
WHUP's vision is consistent with that of excellent community stations around the country – present a high-quality, eclectic, host-driven mix of music and conversation that collectively reflects the community we serve, with an emphasis on local and regional talent. That space has largely been abandoned by large commercial and public broadcasters, so they have plenty of room in which to operate without fear of overlap!

With a commitment to honest coverage, common-sense editorial policy and great writing, YES! Weekly has become a vital part of the Triad media scene, breaking stories, uncovering hidden cultural gems and winning both statewide and regional awards.
