Friday Feedback

We’d love to hear from you on Friday Feedback. WHQR takes comments on all aspects of its programming and operations. Leave feedback by calling the station at 910-292-9477 or by emailing feedback@whqr.org.

Listener John wrote after our Partnership Challenge drive: “I know you are pleased to have the recent pledge drive completed and so am I. While I usually only listen to the station while driving around town I find the unrelenting clownish theatrics employed by your staff and volunteers during pledge week to be quite annoying and offensive. I would double my annual contribution if you would cease these annoying tactics. I realize that funding is essential for your operations but isn't there a...

Today’s Feedback offers a peek behind the curtain of our recently-concluded fundraising drive. Let’s start with a strong dissent from listener Justin: “I would first like to express that my radio seldom changes from WHQR and that I am grateful for the amount of information imparted to me through your various news programs.

First off…today is commentator Nan Graham’s birthday ! We will be fundraising next week in our Partnership Challenge, so there won’t be an official Friday Feedback.

The biggest is the announcement, made last night, of the station’s most transformative capital campaign ever: emPowering Our...

NPR

Here are a couple of thank-yous that really belong to NPR, but I thought our listeners might like to hear them. Listener Anne Van Slyke wrote: As an avid WHQR listener, I wanted to thank you for correctly reporting a story about The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many times this church is mistaken for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which causes people to misunderstand the beliefs and practices of The "Mormon" church. As a faithful member of The...
