WAMU 88.5 : News

Problems With Our Transmission

WAMU 88.5 recently moved into our new media center at 4401 Connecticut Avenue, NW. We are experiencing technical issues with our transmitter, which is located at American University.

The issues with the transmitter have caused WAMU 88.5 FM, Bluegrass Country 105.5 FM, and our HD channels to occasionally drop the signal.

Our technical staff is actively working to resolve these issues. We apologize for these interruptions.
