Who We Are:

WBHM 90.3 FM is a member-supported service of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. More than half of the station’s financial support comes from members, with additional support from corporate underwriting and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). WBHM, “Your NPR Station,” is also home to the Alabama Radio Reading Service, a resource for the blind and print-impaired.
