The WBEZ app brings you radio anytime, anywhere – on your terms. With hundreds of shows, stories and podcasts available at the tap of a finger, the best audio news and storytelling is ready and waiting whether you’re on the bus, at work or on the run. Plus you’ll never miss a minute when you rewind the radio to go back in time and listen to shows that just aired with our revolutionary rePlayer.

WBEZ now supports CarPlay, so you can stream live radio, podcasts, and shows you missed from CarPlay interfaces.

What’s New

Version 8.0.0

WBEZ now supports CarPlay. Stream WBEZ 91.5 or Vocalo 91.1 directly from CarPlay interfaces. You can also browse podcasts and replay shows you missed from the airwaves.

We also added support for audio scrubbing. So you can easily skip forward or backward in whatever audio you're listening to.

Finally we have streamlined the homepage to make shows more accessible, updated the UI and added several bug fixes.

Buggy recently

Love the app but question the developer support—recently I have been getting audio glitches, like audio skipping back and repeating a few seconds. Since iOS 14 the app will not play more than about 1 minute of audio without stopping, requiring play to be tapped repeatedly.

Great way to get news!

The app is greatly improved. Love being able to get my favorite public radio shows on the go!

Awesome audio experience

Truly one of a kind way to listen to Chicago’s NPR station. I love being able to stream Fresh Air from earlier in the day or catch up on Morning Edition
