Current circumstances have forced us all to step-away from the microphone for the time-being.  We are still on the air: at 90.5-FM and also streaming globally (click our logo at the top of the page to listen!), and are adhering to our normal broadcast schedule as closely as possible: alternative rock on the weekdays, plus the music of Super Soul each and every Saturday. 

Sonic Sunrise continues to air every weekday morning from 5-9am.  In addition to the best rock on the radio, stay informed with updates from NBC NewsRadio and Erie News Now every 30 minutes at the top and bottom of each hour. 

Oh--we have a new app!  Download "Radio FX" to your mobile device, search for WERG, and make us a favorite station (please).  You'll be able to interact with us and tune-in whenever and wherever you want.  Thanks for supporting college radio and listening to 90.5 WERG.  Stay safe with your family, and let's listen to some great music together.




90.5 WERG is on the air 24/7/365.  During the week, you'll hear a great mix of new modern and indie rock from the likes of The Black Keys, Of Monsters and Men, Panic at the Disco, The 1975, Hozier, Florence & the Machine, Twenty-One Pilots, Alice Merton, and Bastille; heritage alternative tracks from such names as R.E.M., The Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, and Oasis; and some old-school new wave for good measure--New Order, Depeche Mode, INXS, and The Cure.  It all adds-up to the best rock on the radio!
