- About WERS
Live Music Week happens bi-annually at WERS to raise money to keep our station running. We ask if you can pledge your support in order to keep us live on air, bringing you live performances from your favorite musicians. Pledges can be made here.
When you walk through the doors on your way to the action, there are signs everywhere, one of which includes the goal poster – A pyramid that reaches all the way up to $115,000, which we here at WERS are attempting to reach this week. In the newsroom is a bank of computers, where members of the staff have been taking listeners’ calls and pledges. As the DJ says the number on air, calls come in and pledges are taken. As the caller relays information, one of our staff enters their information into an online form.
But that’s not all that happens here! Because WERS values personal interaction with its listeners, chances are if you call in you’ll have an actual conversation with someone while they help you. Our phone operators love talking to listeners – and they have some interesting stories to share from their time taking calls here during Live Music Week.
