Hit-Mix 88.9
Listen Live

Adopt-a-Watt is Here!

We know WEIU radio is important to our listeners and the community. Funding for the station is also essential so we can continue to provide our programs to the community, which is why we are holding the fourth annual Hit-Mix 88.9 WEIU “Adopt-A-Watt” Radioathon.

Our goal this year is to raise $5,000.


CURRENT TOTAL: 100 of 100 Watts Adopted!

Thank you to all our listeners, alumni, business owners, EIU employees, and everyone else who supported Adopt-a-Watt! We reached our goal by 11:13 a.m. on Sept. 6, 2013.


WEIU operates at 88.9 FM with 4000 watts of power. By adopting a watt (or watts) at the investment of $50 per watt, you can be assured that "your" radio station will be able to deliver the programming, news and sports you have come to rely on. You will “own” your watt for one year and become a member of Hit-Mix 88.9 WEIU.

All members will receive a WEIU membership card, good for discounts at area businesses. Adopting your watt also gets you the T-shirt you see on the right.
