WJFF Radio Catskill is an independent community voice of the Catskills and Northeast Pennsylvania. We connect listeners through locally focused and globally aware programming to inform, entertain, and inspire our communities, and promote understanding among people of diverse social, cultural, economic, and political backgrounds.


Radio Catskill is committed to these core values to carry out its mission.

Compassion and Inclusivity

  • We believe that communities of neighbors, listeners, volunteers, and staff can be better when we come together. We support each other, participate in good faith, listen with care, make space for others, and deliver honest feedback.
  • We achieve more and are more successful in serving our communities when we are inclusive, open, and welcoming.
  • We believe in equity and inclusion in the stories we tell and how we treat each other. We invest in our people and help them chart their way. We have courageous conversations.

Curiosity and Creativity

  • We seek to foster the search for the truth, grounded in facts.  We explore and explain the “why” to our audience.
  • Creativity and the arts are vital to our communities and the hallmark of our service. Our programming celebrates the power of music and culture to enrich our lives.

Stewardship and Sustainability

  • We have a long history of environmental stewardship and commitment to renewable energy.
  • We are dedicated to protecting and celebrating our precious rivers, forests, farms, and mountains.



Diversity is central to Radio Catskill. Compassion and inclusivity are among our core values. We believe in equity and inclusion in the stories we broadcast and how we treat each other.

All forms of diversity and the absence of any forms of discrimination are important to Radio Catskill including–but not limited to–gender, sexual orientation, generation, geographic location, disability, race, religion, educational background, and field of employment. A diverse workforce, community of volunteers, Board of Trustees, and Community Advisory Board inform our understanding of the communities of the Catskills, Northeastern Pennsylvania, Upper Delaware, and Mid-Hudson River Valleys, and enable us to deliver content and services that will help us attract, engage and inform our listeners. We recruit from a broad pool of candidates enabling us to hire and promote qualified individuals with a variety of backgrounds and talents that reflect the diverse needs and interests of the communities served by Radio Catskill.

Radio Catskill broadcasts a wide range of programming, including programs that amplify the experiences and perspectives of the African American, Latino & LGBTQIA+ populations, veterans, farmers, Indigenous peoples, and many others. Radio Catskill also provides on-air and online exposure for various cultural and civic organizations based in our community and beyond.

Radio Catskill’s 2022-2026 Strategic Plan includes several diversity goals:

  • We will build a larger, more diverse, and more inclusive Radio Catskill community through strategies of interpersonal outreach, building partnerships, and relationship and community building.
  • We will grow and diversify our Radio Catskill community by prioritizing outreach to young people, people of color, long-time and multi-generational residents
  • We will strengthen and build our talent and human resources including volunteers, staff, and board.
  • We will continue to develop content that serves all people of all backgrounds in our community.
  • We will explore new opportunities for achieving and promoting diversity and to monitor and evaluate our success.
