About 88.3 Ocean City

WAMU airs on the Maryland Eastern Shore and in Delaware on 88.3 Ocean City. The station's program schedule largely mirrors the WAMU 88.5 schedule, including the WAMU-produced, Peabody award-winning The Diane Rehm Show and NPR's Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and Car Talk.

At noon and 8 p.m., Fridays, 88.3 Ocean City features Coastal Connection, a weekly public affairs program in which reporter Bryan Russo interviews and profiles a wide range of local advocates, elected officials, and artists and musicians who live and work on the Eastern Shore.

88.3 Ocean City expands the reach of our signature brand of civil discussion of public affairs to the audience on the peninsula, as well as serving existing Washington listeners who vacation or own homes there. We welcome new listeners and online visitors!
