New Program: The Newsroom Launches Friday

WHQR is proud to announce the arrival of a new program, The Newsroom, which will first air this Friday, February 5th. The Newsroom will air at noon on the first Friday of every month and will be rebroadcast on the following Sunday at 1pm on HQR News 91.3fm.

Hosted by Ben Schachtman, Managing Editor of HQR News, the program will be an opportunity for local officials and reporters -- the people who make news and the people who report it -- to talk about the issues that affect our community. According to host Ben Schachtman, "Our goal is to have candid, in-depth conversations about the topics that concern our listeners. It will be a chance to dig a little deeper into the news."

Schachtman's guests on the first show will be Spence Broadhurst, President of the New Hanover Community Endowment, Jon Evans of WECT and Alexandria Sands from the Port City Daily, and Kevin Mauer, the Director of Community Engagement for the Cape Fear Collective.
