The purpose of WDAV is to provide classical music and cultural arts programming of the highest quality and to promote the activities of local arts organizations and artists of all disciplines. The station is more than a music service. Significant air time and staff resources are devoted to creating "a community of the arts." This is accomplished by broadcasting locally recorded concerts and by promoting the events and activities of area arts organizations through on-air public service announcements, co-sponsorships, ticket-gives and occasional interview features.
WDAV promotes major community projects throughout the year. In 1996, WDAV received statewide recognition with the "Excellence in Media" award from ARC of North Carolina (Association of Retarded Citizens).In 1998 the station was awarded the DEI Award for major Gifts at the Public Radio Conference in Washington DC.
