Welcome to Colonial Beach Community Radio – 88.1FM 24 hours a day!
We got our first press coverage in the April 3rd Edition of Westmoreland News. Reporter and Colonial Beach resident Suzy Pietras-Smith attended the organizational meeting on March 30th, and filed the story below. Funny thing was, I didn’t spot it myself but had it called to my attention by somebody in my building at work […]
The Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce have graciously invited WWER to share a corner of their office for 6 months while we figure out where we will live on a more permanent basis! Thanks for the free space! We are investigating a more permanent solution, but this will take the pressure off for our very […]
Last night, I made a presentation to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation (our parent organization) about our progress so far. They seem as excited as some of you about the prospect of our little town having it’s own radio station, and want to help. I explained to them what we have accomplished so far, what […]

The FCC paperwork to assign the license of WWER to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation was officially filed March 19. Typically it takes the FCC 30 to 60 days to act on these requests. “Stay tuned” for further updates!

Please join us for our first volunteer meeting this Saturday, March 30th at 10:30am. As per Wikipedia, ” Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial or social gain “to benefit another person, group or organization”. If you are unable to make this meeting but want […]
