On May 1, 1988 WERU Community Radio began broadcasting at 89.9 FM from the top of Blue Hill Mountain along Downeast and Midcoast Maine. In 1997 the station moved to its current location in East Orland. We began streaming its broadcast signal on the Internet in 1999. In 2012 we replaced our aged radio transmitter, which we rather miraculously kept running well beyond its expected life span, with a new state of the art transmitter. Also in 2012 WERU established a low power signal to Bangor at 99.9 FM.
2018 marks our 30th anniversary, but you can explore our history through our WERU’s 25th anniversary project.
