The station's 24-hour format includes a diversity of music programs, ranging from jazz to blues to gospel to reggae to salsa to hip-hop, and public affairs talk programming, like the Marc Steiner Show and First Edition, which include listener comments through the WEAA 88.9 call-in line.
WEAA 88.9 is home to a team of award-winning news reporters, public affairs hosts, and music hosts, and is Baltimore's source for in-depth coverage of local, national and international events.

WEAA 88.9 is the only public radio station in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan region where diverse perspectives are regularly represented in public dialogue on a range of topics, and the station has become an important community meeting place to have difficult conversations, including those around race, violence and inequality.
