Adopt-a-Watt is Sept. 18-23!
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 seventh annual Hit-Mix 88.9 WEIU “Adopt-A-Watt” Radioathon.
We have our sights set on a $12,000 goal, and there are two ways you can help us hit that number:
- You can make a one-time $100 gift, which also comes with a T-shirt featuring the "WEIU FM&TV" design you see above and a WEIU membership card.
- Or you can pledge $8.89 per month for one year (this option does not include the T-shirt).
WEIU operates at 88.9 FM with 4000 watts of power. By adopting a watt -- or multiple watts! -- 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.
What makes Hit-Mix different from those other stations? What makes us stand out?
