From the CEO

As you see from our cover story, in this month’s issue we are highlighting our Radio and News staff. These dedicated folks have been working hard to keep things running smoothly during the pandemic.

During these past 10 weeks, our community has faced an increased amount of changes. We all are seeking some type of normalcy again in our lives. It’s times like these that make me especially grateful to be a part of a public media organization.

As I write this we are experiencing uncertain times. The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting all of us in ways we never thought imaginable.

April 22 is Earth Day, and 2020 is the 50th year that our nation has celebrated this day created to increase awareness of environmental issues and bring about changes to protect the earth. At WHRO Public Media, we think every day is a good day to celebrate this great planet and educate others on ways we can all help protect our environment.

The name of March comes from Martius, which was the first month of the earliest Roman calendar. Some cultures and religions still celebrate the start of the new year on March 1. It is also the month that ushers in spring—even if the weather doesn’t always play along. For your public media station, March is a busy month filled with exciting events and programs.
