WHQR FM’s spring pledge drive is going on this week, and that’s a pretty hectic time for the NPR affiliate’s staff.
But the station still made some time for me to record a story there about the new prison chapel being built at Pender Correctional Institution in Burgaw. It airs today (March 21).
You can listen to it here.
My third story aired on our partner station WHQR 91.3 FM on Thursday (Feb. 16).
It was linked to the story I wrote about Temple of Israel’s Rabbi Paul Sidlofsky and his formal installation.
With all of the natural sound and interview collecting I did for the story, I got a real appreciation for how hard radio journalists work!
Enjoy it here.
This week I had my first official voice training lesson for radio.
I’ve been singing in choral groups and on karaoke stages for about 20 years. And that’s how I lost my stage fright and most of my Southern accent.
But facing a radio board full of slide buttons and audio recording equipment, all while trying to keep my voice steady, was a little more daunting.
My thanks to WHQR FM’s anchor Bob Workmon for showing me the ropes.
I am pleased to welcome WHQR FM as Religion News Wilmington’s second media partner, in addition to the StarNews.
If you tune into Wilmington’s NPR affiliate, 91.3 FM, each week, you’ll hear news spots and features from Religion News Wilmington’s staff or contributors.
Listen for my first news spot next week.
