WVIA-FM (89.9 FM) is the National Public Radio member station for Northeastern Pennsylvania. It is licensed to the community of Scranton. WVIA is owned by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Educational Television Association along with its sister television station, WVIA-TV. The station's studios are based in Jenkins Township, near Pittston, with transmitter just south of Wilkes-Barre. WVIA-FM signed on in 1973, and since 2001 has operated a full-time satellite in Williamsport, WVYA-FM.
WVIA owns Chiaroscuro Records and broadcasts the Chiaroscuro Channel jazz on WVIA-FM HD-3.
The building housing the transmitters for WVIA-FM and WVIA-TV was destroyed by fire on February 12, 2010; as a result, the station is operating at reduced power from Marywood University.

WVIA-FM had operated a translator at 89.3 FM in Williamsport since the late 1970s. However, in 2001, it decided to open WVYA as a full-time satellite to serve more of the Williamsport area. The 89.3 FM translator is still used to improve reception in southern Williamsport.
In addition to the main station, WVIA-FM is relayed by an additional 2 stations and 9 translators to widen its broadcast area.
