WRBB is a non-commercial, non-profit, free-form station run by students at Northeastern University in Boston providing the surrounding areas with a musical diversity not available on any of Boston’s commercial stations. In addition to an eclectic mix of shows, all major Northeastern basketball, baseball, and hockey games are also broadcasted live.

WRBB first began broadcasting on December 13, 1962 as WNEU, a carrier current station which reached only two dormitories. In 1970 the the station moved to FM and changed its call letters to WRBB (RBB standing for Radio Back Bay). An FCC ruling forced the station to move to its current frequency of 104.9 in 1982. WRBB is a Class D non-commercial radio station licensed by the Federal Communications Commission that transmits from the campus of Northeastern University.
