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.

We’re ALL part of this diverse and amazing extended family!
