WRBB (104.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a variety format. Licensed to Boston, Massachusetts, USA, it serves the Boston area, and is run by Northeastern students. The station is currently owned by Northeastern University and transmitted from Northeastern's campus. The station went on the air in on December 13, 1962 as WNEU, broadcasting only to a few dorms on campus. In 1970, the station then changed to call letters WRBB and began broadcasting on 91.7 MHz. In 1982 the frequency changed to the current 104.9, due to interference from other stations and FCC rulings. In addition to variety of music played, all major Northeastern basketball, baseball, football and hockey games are also broadcast live on WRBB. It was one of the first college radio stations in the country to broadcast hip-hop music during the early 1980s.
