Praise Communications, Inc. is a non-profit (501(C)3 organization and is the owner of WPRZ-FM, a non-commercial educational radio station licensed by the Federal Communications Commission.  The station is supported by donations from individuals and by non-commercial sponsorships from local businesses.

 We feel that this is the most important time in our history to keep the station strong and broadcasting.  People are afraid and uncertain as to what lies ahead for them.  We are here to help them keep their focus on the things of God where they will find strength to carry on with hope instead of fear.  WPRZ is a lighthouse shining the light of God and drawing people to His word.   God's Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path and WPRZ keeps it going out into our community and around the world 24/7 right here from Culpeper.   You can be a part of helping people find hope and peace in the midst of this great storm.  Please, click Donate and give your very best.  We pray God will bless you for your giving!  You can read more about us at wprz.org.

Our Story

 WPRZ/Praise Communications, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Steve and Sally Buchanan and a group of believers who shared their vision for Christian radio.  WPRZ-AM was the first all Christian radio station in the area.  

WPRZ first aired on a 1,000 watt AM station that was given to Praise Communications, Inc.  Though it faced the threat of cancellation several times, WPRZ has been kept alive by God’s will and the perseverance of Steve and Sally Buchanan and their dedicated staff and volunteers.

Now, almost 40 years later, what began as a pioneering small AM station, now streams to the world over the internet at wprz.org and on WPRZ 88.1 FM.  The mission to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, to nurture and help believers grow in their relationship with God and to strengthen the local church continues as we look forward to growing the reach of WPRZ.

Our slogan is Glorifying God and Growing Believers.  We do this by airing the best Bible teaching programs in the country,  and providing unique music in segments of Contemporary Christian and Classic Gold Contemporary music weekday mornings, Christian Country music in the afternoons, and Gospel Bluegrass music on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.
