We will broadcast live on Newburyport Comcast CH 9 tonight at 7 PM. If you are looking for our live stream,  go to PortMedia YouTube and when we are live, you should see a “LIVE” indicator.  We apologize for the audio in advance…it is not great…we are also aiming for live on WJOP 96.3 FM so check there too. If the stream disconnects, stay on…we will be working to reconnect.
