WNVU is a Spanish-language Christian formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Charles City, Virginia, serving the Richmond/Petersburg area.[3] WNVU is owned and operated by Educational Media Foundation (EMF).[4] The station is the first full-time Spanish-language FM station in the Richmond area.[5][better source needed]


American Family Association launched the station as WAUQ in 2000,[1] relaying its American Family Radio network which featured a mix of Christian teaching and Contemporary Christian music.

On August 18, 2015, Educational Media Foundation purchased the station from the American Family Association for $1.25 million.[6][7] EMF began relaying its K-Love network on the station, and changed the station's call letters to WLRJ.[2][5]

On April 17, 2017, WLRJ began stunting with a continuously-repeating informational loop informing listeners that K-Love in Richmond had moved, and directing listeners to EMF's recently acquired stations on 98.9 FM (WLFV) and 100.3 FM (WKYV).[8]

On April 26, 2017, WLRJ began relaying EMF's Radio Nueva Vida network.[9] The station changed its call sign to WNVU on December 22, 2017.
