Dear WHQR Listener,

As the year comes to a close, it's a tradition to both look back and anticipate what lies ahead.

2011 has been a year of significant progress. We've made some important additions to staff: Michelle Bliss as News Director, and the return of both Bob Workmon and Rachel Lewis Hilburn. We also received a very positive audit, for the first time in years. I'm very glad that we have reduced the number of fundraising days from 26 to 17, at the same time increasing our membership income. We also continue to work on bringing you the best programming possible.
