Awards & Winners


WBUR-FM is a public radio station located in Boston, Massachusetts, owned by Boston University. WBUR is the largest of three NPR member stations in Boston, along with WGBH and WUMB-FM. WBUR produces several nationally distributed programs, including Car Talk, On Point, Only A Game and Here and Now and previously produced The Connection. RadioBoston, launched in 2007, is WBUR's only purely local show. WBUR's positioning statement is "Boston's NPR News Station." WBUR also carries its programming on four other stations serving Cape Cod and the Islands; WCCT-FM in Harwich and WSDH in Sandwich carry WBUR programming via local marketing agreements, and Boston University also owns WBAS in West Yarmouth and WBUA in Tisbury; the latter station, located on Martha's Vineyard, uses the frequency formerly occupied by WMVY. Following the acquisition of WBUA, on August 5, 2013 BU announced that it would sell the 1240 AM facility to Alex Langer, who will program it with Portuguese-language programming. In 1998, WBUR helped launch WRNI in Providence, Rhode Island—the first NPR station within Rhode Island's borders. It has since sold the station to a local group.
