Thank you to everyone who helped us go OVER our goal for the Fall 2014 Pledge Drive!!!! This morning as of 11 am we raised OVER $140,000. Thank you to the 1,173 supporters, members, volunteers, friends and family of the station for making this yet another successful pledge drive for WHQR.! It's all thanks to you that we are able to bring you a wide variety of news, entertainment and music. Thank you again and here's to another great year for WHQR!!!!
Congratulations to WHQR's Fall Partnership Challenge Winners:
Thanks to the generosity of some great public-spirited donors (see below), WHQR has created the HD Radio Pay It Forward Fund. Through the fund, we are able to provide an Insignia FM/HD radio AT NO CHARGE to 25 or more WHQR members having trouble receiving Classical HQR at 96.7 FM.
The recent addition of Classical HQR 96.7fm and the simultaneous revamp of HQR News 91.3fm have been, as expected, mammoth tasks. Because we are automated during parts of the day and on weekends, we have had to re-write literally thousands of lines of computer code. Some of it has gone more smoothly than we could have hoped.
Since signing on Classical HQR at 96.7 last week, we have received many messages of thanks from classical listeners in New Hanover and areas in neighboring counties who are overjoyed to have classical music on FM 24 hours a day. But listeners elsewhere have reported reception problems.
