90.7 WFAE is the NPR affiliate station serving Charlotte, N.C., and the Central Piedmont area.

Founded in 1981 as part of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, WFAE today is an independent, public radio station. WFAE is a non-profit organization and is partially supported through its membership base and corporate underwriters. Active in the community, WFAE has sponsored a wide range of special events throughout the years, from elegant art exhibits to the excitement of a steeplechase, from outdoor summer symphonies to educational seminars.
