WERU’s broadcast operations have changed due to the Coronavirus emergency. To ensure the well being of our volunteers and staff, all of our volunteer music programmers and public affairs hosts are staying at home, and access to the station will be limited to only a couple members of the staff. Yet we’ll keep the excellent programming coming your way!
Most of our music shows are being produced at home by our intrepid volunteers. Our live music programming is currently limited to Morning Maine (weekdays 7:00-9:00 a.m.). At 8:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we feature live call-ins from our public affairs program hosts, reporting on what’s happening in the areas that their shows normally cover. The same short spoken features as listeners normally hear are continuing, and we are announcing community calendar “electronic events” weekdays at 8:45 a.m.
At 2:00 p.m. weekdays we are airing a live “Daily Coronavirus Update” with our News & Public Affairs Manager, Amy Browne. These reports outline what has taken place in Maine today regarding the pandemic, plus lists of resources to help individuals and the community cope with the crisis.
Even though the station is currently operating differently, there is still plenty of great programming to listen to on WERU. Working together (staff, volunteers an listeners) we will keep the station going strong and serving the community. Thank you for doing your part!
