Live Stream Currently Out

 Many apologies to our loyal listeners who tune in to WERU by streaming but can't hear us right now.  It's not about you, it's about us.  Our stream is currently down due to a hardware problem here at the station which we hope to have remedied by Monday. We're very sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.   Read more »



WERU is Now Accepting Applications for Membership on our Community Advisory Board (10/3/11)

We currently have room for new members on our Community Advisory Board (CAB).  The CAB is a body established by the WERU Board of Directors to assist the station in being more responsive to the community.  The CAB provides feedback on programming and station activities to supplement that which we already receive on a regular basis from our listeners.  CAB input is used by WERU volunteer programmers, station staff and the Board of Directors to inform decision-making regarding programming and other activities.  CAB members are appointed by the Board of Directors with the intent that the group is reasonably representative of the diverse needs and interests of the communities served by the station.  One-year terms can be renewed from year-to-year.  The CAB is a strictly advisory body and is not authorized to create or change programming or station policy.  The CAB meets with the Board of Directors as a group once per year and then in smaller group meetings with listeners throughout the year.

 If you are interested in being considered for the Community Advisorty Board please email with two or three paragraphs about yourself and why you think you would be an asset to WERU in this capacity.  Please include the town in which you reside and what most interests you about WERU.   Read more »
