On the heels of a deeply polarized election, Donald Trump assumed office having won the Electoral College, 306 to 232, but having lost the popular vote by over 2.8 million voters. His opponents argue that he gave voice and legitimacy to extremists, and that his unpredictable, autocratic style is a threat to both democratic ideals at home and stability abroad. But others, including critics, argue that Trump’s election represents the will of the American people, who--hungry for change--repudiated the status quo.

Its quick development in the Triangle has fostered a legacy that is making it the cool new kid on the block, just in time for the new school year.

I’ve got an appetite for radio and not just in the metaphorical sense. My appetite is literal. In the same vein as the overused joke of “having a face for radio,” apparently I’ve got the stomach for it too. Since arriving at WHQR, I’ve been filled with constant indulges in local culture and news, but there’s a big part of the piece that doesn’t carry through to the airwaves.

What's on your grocery list? Eggs, milk, bread, and maybe a glass of wine while you're aisle-bound.

Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris star in this gripping adaptation of John le Carré's best-selling thriller about an ordinary English couple who find themselves caught up in international intrigue. While on vacation in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian who, unbeknownst to them, is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia.

WHQR held its 2016 Annual Meeting on Thursday, July 21. The Board of Directors, Community Advisory Board members, staff and WHQR audiences came together to celebrate a great year and to set the stage for 2017.

Peterson was recently featured on CNN's "Declassified." She's a retired CIA case officer, and in the 1970s, she was based in Moscow as the agency's contact with "Trigon," a mole in the Soviet Foreign Ministry. "Marti" was arrested by the KGB, taken to Moscow's notorious Lubyanka prison -- and lived to tell the tale.

Donald Wood of Wilmington, North Carolina passed away on July 4, 2016 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, just two days past his 71st birthday. Don was born in Rochester, NY and honorably served in the U.S. Coast Guard until 1989.

As a front desk volunteer, Don’s presence and dedication on WHQR’s front line will be greatly missed. His humor and conversation lifted the spirits of all those around him.
