89Q in Wausau, WI saw a record shattering fall pledge drive (Thanksgiving Sharathon) the week of November 15.
General Manager Coy Sawyer said, “we are adding staff and growing our outreach in North Central Wisconsin and our listeners stepped up with over $325,000 in gifts and pledges to ensure that growth vison. The goal was our largest increase to date and stretched our faith so it was encouraging to see us hit our goal early on Thursday.”
2022 Plans of 89Q include more hiring to facilitate the local on-air presence, local events, and building the new studio to mentor area high school and college students.
“Our plan is to begin the program this spring or next fall. Once students are equipped, they will run the secondary stream and should we go HD, we will have that additional format run by the students.”
