Be a part of our story: Adopt-a-Watt today!

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 fifth annual Hit-Mix 88.9 WEIU “Adopt-A-Watt” Radioathon.


We've Met Our Goal!

Our goal was to have 100 listeners pledge $8.89 per month for one year, which would put us over our $10,000 goal. Thanks to the generosity of our great listeners, we surpassed that number in fewer than five days!


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.

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 donation page.
