Ways to listen to The Bridge

How to listen to WBFO The Bridge

HD Radio

Listen to WBFO The Bridge on WBFO 88.7 HD-2 or WNED 94.5 HD-2.

HD Radio is a digital technology that produces the highest quality audio available. With HD Radio, you’ll hear crystal clear reception and CD-quality sound.

The new technology effectively eliminates noise, interference and fades (also known as multipath interference) from our signal. If you’ve experienced static on a standard radio at home, or while driving around town or waiting at a red light, you’ll appreciate the clear, consistent sound HD Radio delivers.

On Your Computer

To listen to WBFO The Bridge, click on the "All Streams" bar on wbfo.org/thebridge, select "The Bridge" and press the red and white play button at the top of our page if you're on a desktop computer, and at the bottom of the page if you're on a smart phone. You can continue to any page on this site and the audio will continue to play.

You can listen to The Bridge on wned.org by selecting the "Listen Live: WBFO The Bridge" button on the home page. A new window will open with an audio player. Press the black play button.

You can also select WBFO The Bridge from the "Listen Live" options on the player at npr.org.

Using Our Apps

Whether you’re at home or on the go, download the app for WBFO The Bridge or any of the Buffalo Toronto Public Media apps (WBFO, WBFO JazzWorks, WNED Classical or WNED PBS) for easy and convenient access to The Bridge. Search for WBFO The Bridge at your app store.

You can also stream WBFO The Bridge from the NPR One app. Look for the stream in the "Live Radio" section at the bottom of the page.

Smart Speakers

WBFO The Bridge is just one voice command away. Initially ask Alexa to "Enable The Bridge" to get the audio stream. The next time, you can simply ask Alexa to "Play the Bridge."

If you use a Google home device say, "Hey Google talk to WBFO The Bridge" or "Hey Google, ask WBFO The Bridge to listen live" to hear the stream.

If those invocations don't work, you can add "on TuneIn" to the prompt -- "Play WBFO 88.7 HD 2 on TuneIn" or "Play WBFO The Bridge on TuneIn."
