STREAMING SUPPORT

Streaming is made possible by contributions from members and corporate sponsors. Thanks for your support.

ABOUT THE NEW WICN STREAMING PLAYER:
This system does not use an external player (e.g., Windows Media, iTunes).  Links using those players will not work after 9/21/2016.

COMPATIBILITY:
This player should work on all devices: Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, etc. Android and iOS users (most phones and tablets) can install and use the WICN App, which delivers the same high-quality stream directly, along with the latest news and information about WICN. See links on this page.

OPERATION:
The stream runs in the background, but you do need to keep this page open or minimized on your browser for the stream to continue. There’s a volume bar at the bottom of the player. Adjust also your device’s volume control to get the desired level.

PROGRAM NOTE:
WICN brings you a musical interlude instead of NPR newscasts on our stream (generally, from :01 to :06 past the hour, except evenings). This due to WICN’s contract with NPR. Otherwise, stream programs are identical to WICN broadcasts.

GENERAL:
The WICN stream now runs the AAC (Advanced Audio Compression) format. AAC carries twice the digital signal in half the bandwidth of MP3, so gives near-CD-quality sound while using less data. WICN’s stream is also available via TuneIn and other Apps; at this time, it’s not available on iHeart.
