The new WTBU Radio app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch lets you listen to WTBU, Boston University's student-run radio station, anywhere in the world (as long as you have a WiFi, 3G, or 4G LTE connection). You can have WTBU playing in the background of your phone while surfing the web, checking emails and texting your friends!
WTBU is Boston University's student radio station under College of Communication, broadcasting online on www.WTBUradio.org, on the BU cable TV system channel 6 and in selected buildings on campus on either 640 AM or 89.3 FM. WTBU offers listeners unique music programming along with local and national news and live sport broadcasts. We're entirely staffed by volunteer students under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
We began broadcasting online in October 1999. WTBU serves the immediate Boston University community, University alumni, and numerous other listeners across the country and the world.
WTBU's most famous alumni, Howard Stern, was a DJ beginning in 1973 with a show called the King Schmaltz Bagel Hour. While Howard went on to graduate in 1976 from the College of Communication (with an impressive 3.8 GPA), WTBU claims the rights as the first station to fire Howard, after he ran a segment called "Making the Bishop Blush."
WTBU, The Beat of Boston University!
