From the CEO

Summer is here, and now that the weather is warm and COVID-19 restrictions are easing, I’m looking forward to spending more time outdoors.

In 2007, while I was interviewing with the WHRO board as a candidate to be the station’s next president and CEO, my wife, Missy, and I traveled back and forth from Harrisonburg several times. During those four-hour drives, we made a habit of listening to the podcast of HearSay with Cathy Lewis during those trips.

As we look forward to Earth Day this month, I’m excited to announce a big development in our environmental education services.

As the old English proverb says, “March comes in like a lion...” It feels like 2021 is racing by! While our world is still working to establish a “new normal” in many ways, I’m excited that our station has continued to adapt and meet community needs during this last year in the midst of a global pandemic.

February is always an exciting time at our station, and one of my favorite events occurs this month—our annual Spelling Bee.
