Explore the History of WERU
Welcome to the 25th Anniversary section of the WERU web site. Over this past quarter-century, over a thousand WERU volunteers and tens of thousands of listeners along with local businesses, community groups, artists, and musicians have made WERU what it is today: truly a “Voice of Many Voices.”
To help celebrate WERU's Silver Anniversary, WERU offered a series of events and special programming all year long, and the celebration continues this year with access to all issues of Salt Air (the WERU Program Guide), photos of past and present WERU volunteers and events, a WERU History timeline, and lots of other resources so that anyone can re-live, or discover for the first time, the history of the station.
“Little Quizzette” included in the special 25th Anniversary Salt Air printed in June 2013 are available here. Many thanks to all of the volunteers, members and underwriters who have sustained the station for all these years!
