WVOA-LP is a low-power analog television station that operates as a radio station. The station, formerly known as WMBO-LP, operates a brokered religious format known as Love Radio; Love Radio had previously aired in the Syracuse area on FM 103.9, now known as WSEN. WVOA-LP operates on analog channel 6, allowing its audio feed to be heard on the FM radio dial at 87.7 MHz. It is not to be confused with WSTQ-LP, Syracuse's CW affiliate, which broadcasts on channel 14 but uses its cable position of channel 6 to brand as "CW 6".

Prior to adopting its current format in October 2013,[1] WMBO-LP carried a feed of NASA TV, which it had carried since returning to the air in November 2010.[2]

WVOA-LP's programming consists mostly of brokered religious programming from around the United States, with Salem Radio Network's “The Fish” network filling in unsold gaps. A few secular music programs also air, primarily on weekends.

Despite a similarity in call signs, there is no relation between WVOA-LP and the Voice of America service. The VOA call sign was requested when the station changed to a Classical music format in the late 80's. The meaning was Voice Of (the) Arts. The WVOA call sign was retained when the station was returned to Christian Broadcasting about 2 years later.
