Pat Fowler, a long-time volunteer at WERU, has been selected as the "2017 Volunteer of the Year" by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, by virtue of her almost three decades of volunteer service.

You can tell Congress "No to zero" funding and help protect Community Radio! Read more »
