WRUR 88.5 FM is the public radio station of the University of Rochester owned by the University of Rochester Broadcasting Corporation (UORBC). WRUR has a partnership with the WXXI Public Broadcasting Council (WXXI). WRUR-FM provides quality programming that enriches the university and greater Rochester community. WRUR also provides students leadership and radio operations opportunities. WRUR began in the fall of 1948, occupying 2 rooms in the basement of Burton residence hall and broadcasted campus-wide at 650 AM. We believe that music has the power to change the world. Our playlist focuses on songs that tell stories, and are performed by new and established artists who are committed to their craft. WRUR-FM airs news and information programming. The WXXI Center For Public Affairs, along with NPR, bring the community Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and regional news coverage.
