History

WTRM is located in the former Armel School building along US 522 south of Winchester.

The name "Timber Ridge" was chosen because WTRM's transmitter sits atop Great North Mountain on Timber Ridge Trail in western Frederick County, Virginia.

As a flagship for the "Southern Light Radio Network", WTRM can be heard well beyond the Winchester/Northern Shenandoah Valley area. Southern Light feeds their programs to translators in Millersburg, Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and Aquia Harbour, Virginia, with more planned for the future.

WTRM holds a number of firsts in Winchester area radio. They were the first non-commercial station in Winchester, the first station to uplink to satellite, the first to go all digital, and contrary to popular belief, WTRM was the first to have their own website and stream online and remain one of the few to continue to do so.

WTRM carries IRN/USA Radio News at the top of the hour.

Trivia

The call letters, WTRM, were originally assigned to a Coast Guard installation. The call letters "TRM", can also be found in some Buddy Holly books as the AM station in Beaumont, Texas that once employed J.P. Richardson, better known as The Big Bopper, but of course, those calls were KTRM (now on a Missouri FM station).
