Donate to WCBN!

WCBN’s annual fundraiser is running until February 21. Your support during these ten days puts new music on the shelf and fixes broken turntables; we need you for our day to day. We ask now that you “resubscribe” to the freeform radio that you love, and support the continued education and cultural enrichment of students at the University of Michigan.

Give us a call or donate online, and keep listening.

About Us

What is CBN?

WCBN is the University of Michigan student-run community freeform radio station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We broadcast at 200 watts to the University and its surrounding communities from the Basement of the Student Activities Building in downtown treetown. We are governed by our Constitution.

Our emphasis is on alternative broadcasting, that is, exposing our listenership to things they can't hear on other radio stations. For more information about what we play, check out our Programming Department.

You might want to read some of our Program Guide articles. Our Program Guide is published once a semester; sometimes as a poster and sometimes as a 16 or 24-page booklet.

We have some history of the Network available on-line -- we've been around for over 50 years in one form or another, so our history is quite extensive.

And for those of you who are tech heads, check out our facilities / equipment list.
