WHQR Day

WHQR Day 2017!

Aug 24, 2017

By proclamation of the Mayor of Wilmington and the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners, September 13th will officially be known as WHQR DAY. WHQR listeners all over our area will be asked to wear WHQR buttons, stickers and t-shirts and share photos via social media (#WHQRday). The proclamations will be broadcast on the air and listeners and supporters will end the day at a large celebration at Waterline Brewing Company.

The big WHQR Day Party will be at Waterline Brewing Company, 721 Surry Street, under the bridge, downtown Wilmington from 6 – 8pm on September 13. The event will feature music, food trucks, cake, free t-shirts for the first 50 guests and more. It will also be an opportunity to meet the new Station Manager, Michelle Rhinesmith.

WHQR Public Radio, broadcasting from Wilmington, serves southeastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina with HQR News at 91.3fm and Classical HQR at 92.7fm. WHQR offers news, music, entertainment and interaction to expand knowledge, encourage artistic appreciation, engage our community and promote civil discourse.

Last week I played a call by a fan of our on-air campaign, and got this email in response: "I really like WHQR. I'm a long time listener .. & I do contribute to your support. But I *HATE* your awful begging for money (on-air). Yes, I know someone called in & said he thought it was well done. I'm on the other side of that coin; it is awful. I find another station to listen to when you start & continue to run your terrible begging for financial support. Why can't you do it quietly, like other charities?. . .

Tuesday, 9/13 is WHQR Day (notice how 9/13 is a lot like 91.3). On Tuesday morning, Mayor Bill Saffo will make a proclamation on the air, and WHQR hopes listeners will show support by wearing WHQR buttons, stickers, and/or t-shirts.
