Help Us Meet Our 2023 Fall Pledge Drive Goal!

We are so grateful to our listeners and supporters!

You can show your support for YOUR public radio station, the one in the Cape Fear Region that gives you the award-winning news and programs you rely on to stay informed and the beautiful classical music you love to listen to. When you pledge online or call 910-343-1138, you ensure that WHQR not only stays on the air, but also continues to grow.

As a thank you, you could receive an awesome thank-you gift —a mug or a long-sleeve t-shirt with a cool new design, a NY Times digital subscription, or a co-host role with George Scheibner or Jemila Ericson! Help us meet our goal and get your gift now.

Or when you make a donation of $500 or more, you'll have a pair of premier tickets for an Ira Glass performance of Seven Things I've Learned—plus you'll join Ira on the stage for a pre-show reception meet and greet. This special show is at UNCW's Kenan Auditorium is on November 11.

Don't miss this one-of-a-kind experience... all while supporting the public radio station that brings you This American Life and so many more thought-provoking and entertaining programs.
