1350 WZGM is a 10,000 watt, Western North Carolina owned, commercial radio station that serves the entire Asheville Metro as well as several surrounding counties, reaching a service area population of over 414,000 people. (U.S. Census Bureau) We feature a comprehensive line up of high profile community hosts that reads like a who’s-who of WNC, complimented by seasoned national hosts that focus on “Life Talk”.


Independent Asheville Radio is proud of the strong female presence across our line up, so it’s no surprise that our listeners also lean more female. (See details on the demographics page.) The strong women of Independent Asheville Radio highlight a rich depth of conversation, information, intelligence and entertainment that is hard to find on the radio dial. They highlight topics and perspectives that are refreshing and relevant to listeners across our service population. Brand loyalty is strong amongst these audiences. They support the people and businesses that support the programming they love.

The studio is available for rent as well.

  1. Is there a calendar that shows when the studio is available for rental? Can you provide additional details as to what all can be done with the studio (broadcast, equipment, digital recording, etc)? Thanks.

    • The best thing to do is give the station a call at 828-505-8439 and talk to the station GM (Matt Mittan). His email address is if you would like to contact him that way. Thanks for the suggestions though. We will look at the calendar option and a more detailed description of studio rentals. Thank you!
