Our "Take a Day Off Drive ends today.

Thanks to your generosity, we hit the $140,000 goal of this campaign today. As promised, we will end the campaign one day earlier than ever before, and resume regular programming at 7 pm Tuesday night.

Public stations face an uncertain future if we lose funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. So it’s essential that support for WHQR reach unprecedented levels from our renewing and especially NEW members.

On a personal note, I’ll be retiring later this summer. If there is anything that I hope to leave as a legacy, it’s to solidify the base of essential local public service and financial stability that we achieved in recent years. I’ve made my pledge to this campaign, So please join me in making WHQR stronger and better than ever.

Until Wednesday midnight, you can still make a pledge and get a mug or T-shirt, and enter the contest for the Apple Extravaganza. Call 910-599-0398 through 7 pm tonight, or pledge at whqr.org.

And let’s have FUN!
