Dr. Wayla Chambo adds Music Coordinator Duties to WHRO 90.3 Classical FM

NORFOLK, VA (August 22, 2017) – WHRO Public Media is excited to announce that Dr. Wayla Chambo has assumed the role of Music Coordinator, in addition to her work as host of WHRO-FM’s Afternoon Delights program. Chambo has been a tireless advocate for classical music in the Hampton Roads region and joined the WHRO team in 2014.

Since joining the team, Chambo received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of North Texas in 2015 and has remained committed to sharing classical music through community outreach, education and collaboration. Most recently, she spearheaded “Classical Open Mic Night” at Starving Artist Café in Norfolk – where classical musicians of all ages performed a variety of pieces.

“I knew that Wayla would be a perfect fit for WHRO-FM right from the start. First and most importantly, she loves and knows the music. In addition, she’s smart, pro-active, knows the arts community and thinks outside the box we know as the studio. There is no one better to help us sustain classical music radio in Hampton Roads and beyond,” stated Dwight Davis, celebrated WHRO-FM host since 1983.

Listeners can tune in live on WHRO 90.3FM, WHRO.org and WHRO’s Media App.
