WHQR's 2021 Fall Pledge - Thank You!
Thank you for supporting WHQR's Fall Pledge Drive! More than 900 people became new members, gave additional gifts or increased their monthly sustaining gifts! We are extremely grateful. Thank you for keeping your public radio station on the air!
If you didn't have a chance to contribute, there's still time to call 910-343-1138 or donate online. THANK YOU!
We thank you for supporting the stationthat supports the community! Your gifts help us to continue providing national programs such as All Things Considered, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, Morning Edition, Code Switch, Radiolab, Fresh Air, and Science Friday as well as local programs like CoastLine with Rachel Lewis Hilburn, The Newsroom with Ben Schachtman and the news team, and Around Town with Rhonda Bellamy.
Your gift supports many great things happening at the station! WHQR has grown its news staff by adding News Director Ben Schactman, Reporter/Host Kelly Kenoyer, Community Fellow Ashley Brown, and UNCW Fellow Bethanie Simms to the news team. We’ve brought StoryCorps to Wilmington - they are right now recording the stories of our community for possibly broadcast on NPR and to archived in the Library of Congress. Additionally, we are installing a new, powerful generator so WHQR can broadcast throughout the Cape Fear region during hurricanes and emergencies- even when the power is out!
