Don Gonyea's April 13th visit to Wilmington, NC was met with great success. Gonyea is a Peabody Award-winning journalist with decades of experience, and is currently NPR's National Political Correspondent. With Gonyea's experience comes many fascinating and often amusing stories, including tales about previous presidential campaigns, working with past presidents, and pounding the cement to get another side to a story.

Thanks to the intrepid work of Engineer Jobie Sprinkle and our own George Scheibner, listeners in the Myrtle Beach area can now enjoy Classical HQR, thanks to a brand-new signal at 102.3. The signal was made operational on Saturday, April 23, 2016 (Shakespeare's birthday, and the day after WHQR's 32nd anniversary).

Early tests indicate that many communities in the Grand Strand can now enjoy 24-hour classical music, including our own local programs with Gina Gambony and Pat Marriott as well as the Metropolitan Opera.

CoastLine is now on the air two days a week! You can hear CoastLine on 91.3FM on Wednesday and Thursday at 12:06 pm.
