Inside WHQR

The official WHQR Staff blog featuring fun tidbits and various developments at the station.

WHQR is proud to point the spotlight at one of our most dedicated, knowledgeable and all around passionate staff members, George Scheibner. George has been a DJ, radio personality and friend to us all for over 50 wonderful years and we couldn't be happier that Ben Steelman has taken the time to remind listeners just how much George Scheibner really shines. Be sure tocheck out the George slideshow above!
