WBER Streaming News

You may have noticed that we have updated the WBER website to include an embedded audio player for streaming the station. Starting July 1st this will be the best way to listen to WBER online. Other 3rd party services (including TuneIn, which also provides the embedded player) will continue to work, but if you are currently streaming WBER through a saved link in the audio player on your computer (ie. iTunes, VLC, etc) please take a moment to try the new player. The saved link in your audio player will not work after July 1.

The goal for the 2023 Spring Fundraiser was reached!

We knew we had a steep mountain to climb and although it took a few more days, we exceeded our 60K goal and raised $62,899. We would like to thank all of our listeners for donating during our Spring Fundraiser! Every single day and are thrilled that we get to keep bringing you the best in alternative music as we have since 1985. You truly are the best listeners in all of radio and we are blessed. We’re ALL part of this diverse and amazing extended family!
