WGLT On Your Smart Speaker

Make your smart speaker even smarter

Do you want to listen to WGLT on your smart speaker? WGLT is available on Alexa-enabled devices like the Dot and Echo, as well as Google Home and HomePod. Here’s how to listen:

ALEXA DEVICES (Amazon Dot, Echo, etc.)

When you tell Alexa to "play NPR," you’ll be asked to choose your Member station. Say “WGLT.”

On your second visit, Alexa will confirm the preference and set it as the default. Ask Alexa for NPR and it will now send you straight to your chosen stream: WGLT.

You can also use Alexa Routines to better integrate NPR into your daily listening habits. Learn how.


Say, “OK Google, play WGLT.” It’s that easy.
