WCBU On Your Smart Speaker


Do you want to listen to WCBU on your smart speaker? WCBU is available on Alexa-enabled devices like the Dot and Echo, as well as Google Home. Here’s how to listen:

ALEXA DEVICES (Amazon Dot, Echo, etc.)

When you tell Alexa to "play NPR," you’ll be asked to choose your Member station. Say “WCBU.”

On your second visit, Alexa will confirm the preference and set it as the default. Ask Alexa for NPR and it will now send you straight to your chosen stream: WCBU.

Want to listen to something else?


Say, “OK Google, play WCBU.” It’s that easy.

Want to listen to something else?

  • Highway 309 stream: "OK Google, play Highway 309 on TuneIn."

Another great way to listen is the NPR One app.
