Junior Derek Tupper, senior Ashley Timberlake, professor Joe Rinehart and juniors Kaylee Nicks and Jayme McMillan won first place March 1 in an intercollegiate audio production competition.
For the past 24 years WNZR has been supported by its listeners. Every year the station holds a “Lifeline” fundraiser to be able to continue broadcasting. This year the theme for the fundraiser is “live out loud,” in reference to Romans 1:16. The fundraiser started March 10 and will end on March 12.
Marcy Rinehart, who has been with WNZR since 1996, is the station manager. On the Lifeline fundraiser Rinehart said, “It’s a really neat opportunity for our students to interact and connect with listeners who have supported their educational efforts.”
The fundraiser will kick off March 9, a “day of prayer and praise.” The goal this year is to raise $60,000. WNZR hopes to raise the money through monthly support from listeners. The “Lifeline challenge” asks for local families and students to donate $25 a month for the next year. Other common amounts are ten dollars and $50 monthly.
