WESU Celebrates a Long History and a Power Upgrade

Last Sunday, Mayor Sebastian N. Giuliano declared Monday, Nov. 8 to be as WESU day, celebrating 71 years of community radio and our new transmitter upgrade to 6,000 watts.

After an opening speech by General Manager Ben Michael, President Michael Roth and Giuliano spoke on WESU’s impact in the community and thanked Physical Plant and the Community Health Center (CHC) for helping to finance the transmitter. WESU president Caroline Connors shared some quick words before a slide show presentation on the history of WESU, which was followed by generously donated reception by Tallulah's. Thank you to everyone to helped WESU reach this point, and we hope you all had a happy WESU Day!
