The WHQR Fall Drive 2016 - Phone Teams

Sep 22, 2016

Phone Teams for the Fall Pledge Drive 2016

During our 2016 Fall Pledge Drive, October 12 - ??? (we hope to make our goal by  October 18), WHQR will be welcoming phone teams from all over our region. Send a group of four people to help answer HQR's pledge phones and we'll thank you repeatedly on the air. It's a fun way to spend a few hours and a great way to show your support of WHQR and have your business name mentioned on the air.

Here’s how it will work:

WHQR’s Gina Gambony earned her spot as top dog in radio as she secured 2nd place in KCRW’s 4th Annual Radio Race.

KCRW Radio Race

With the guidance of a just a three-word theme: "Out of Range", KCRW's 4th Annual 24-Hour Radio Race challenged producers to create  a 4 minute story in only 24 hours. As if this challenge wasn't daunting enough, halfway through racers were given this twist for their stories: 

People look into the future and expect that the forces of the present will unfold in a coherent and predictable way, but any examination of the past reveals the circuitous routes of change are unimaginably strange. 

(Rebecca Solnit)

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

In the last couple of weeks we have experienced, and received reports of, poor performance on our Classical HQR signal (92.7 in Wilmington, 102.3 in Myrtle Beach). Symptoms included distortion in loud music and overall weak signal resulting from our attempting to address the problem by lowering the music volume. Once again, wonder-working engineer Jobie Sprinkle (Jobie-Wan) was able to fix the problem, and balance has once more been restored to the Force.

Update in response to inquiries: Rachel Lewis Hilburn is not leaving the station. She is moving to a new role as the local host of All Things Considered, in addition to continuing on CoastLine. Opportunity: The News Director of WHQR Public Radio is head of the News Department and will supervise the station’s news coverage in all media.
