WEBR began as a locally owned and operated radio station and today 97 years later it returns to it's home town roots to again be locally owned and operated. Yuhnke says local ownership gives the station the ability to react quickly and directly with it's listeners. "We are here and we want to be close to and serve all our friends and neighborhoods across Niagara and Erie county". Listeners may be surprised to hear music they loved and enjoyed but has been missing on the radio. They may also be pleasantly surprised to hear popular live on-air personalities they know and love. Angelo explained that we will be the first radio station to regularly feature outstanding recordings by world class talent who call Western New York their home. In this new high tech age people are forced to pay to get the music they love.
