We're taking a day off!

The Spring 2017 "Take a Day Off" campaign reached its announced goal just before 1:00 pm on Tuesday March 21 -- with a day taken off! Our previous drives have run at least 7 days, but we wanted very much to shorten this drive, and thanks to you our listeners, we did.

As promised, we will resume regular programming at 7 pm tonight. 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 7 pm Tuesday, we'll be counting members and pledges. And our T-shirts, mugs and the the Apple Extravaganza drawing will be on our website until Wednesday midnight. So call 910-599-0398, or pledge online.

And let’s have FUN!
