The WCBN app lets you listen to freeform college radio wherever you are.
The song history lets you know what you've heard and it knows the studio number so you can call in requests.
"Jeopardy!" viewers on Wednesday night, April 24, 2013 gained extremely valuable knowledge upon seeing this clue on the screen.
WCBN's engineering staff is working toward a projected December, 2013 timeframe to deploy our new FM signal. Check out the signal increase on this map. The blue line shows the current signal coverage, while the red line outlines the area we will cover after upgrading our signal to 3000 watts.
There are about 274,000 residents in the new coverage area, compared to 118,000 in the current coverage area. We expect improved reception in places like Dexter and Saline.
Support from our listeners, volunteers, and the Regents of the University of Michigan has made this upgrade project possible.
What is CBN? WCBN is the University of Michigan student-run community freeform radio station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We broadcast to the University and its surrounding communities from the Basement of the Student Activities Building in downtown treetown at a frequency of 88.3MHz. Our emphasis is on alternative broadcasting, that is, exposing our listenership to things they can't hear on other radio stations.
Our 2013 Fundraiser was a great success!
If you were deep-sea diving in the Marianas Trench last week and missed out on the fundraising fun, it's not too late to pitch in. Just click on the snazzy red Donate! ribbon at the upper right corner of this page and donate today at the University of Michigan's secure web server.
Our volunteers had a blast greeting listeners and helping them through the pledge process. Your support allows WCBN to continue to enrich the cultural life of our city.
IngenuityPictures has produced a short documentary about WCBN to mark our 40th year of FM broadcasting. Our DJs and volunteers explain the history and current state of the radio station, and why this radio station is important to the culture of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
