WDPR (88.1 FM) is a radio station licensed to Dayton, Ohio, serving the greater Dayton area. The station, which plays classical music and is branded as Discover Classical, is currently owned by Dayton Public Radio.[1][2] It signed on in 1985 at 89.5, moving to 88.1 in 1998.

WDPR also is heard at 89.9 MHz as Greenville repeater WDPG reaching the northern portion of the Miami Valley with 50,000 watts. WDPG was founded in 1985 after the demise of the former WGVO (91.9 MHz), which was operated by the Greenville City Schools. WDPR's old transmitter at 89.5 only operated at 6,000 watts to protect Louisville's WFPL at nearby 89.3. Its current transmitter at 88.1 only operates at 600 watts to protect WNAS in New Albany, Indiana; also at 88.1.
