If you had a chance to meet the award-winning WHYY-FM 90.9 weekday host team, what would you ask them?
Maybe you’d ask Jennifer Lynn what it’s like to get up to host Morning Edition every day, or how she stays so upbeat even when the news is heavy.
Or maybe you’d ask Avi Wolfman-Arent where he came up with the idea for the short history segment, Headlines of Yore. How does he pick those headlines, anyway?
Possibly if you could talk to Priyanka Tewari, you’d ask her about her journey to public radio and what she’s planning next for her segment about music history.
And you might ask Cherri Gregg what it was like coming from KYW, and how she stays connected to the community.
Now you may have your chance!
With your donation to WHYY today, you’ll be entered into a contest to win a private, one-hour Zoom meeting with the WHYY-FM 90.9 weekday host team. The date and time will be mutually agreed upon by you and the team.
This is a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
And watch out! These journalists may also have some questions for you about what you enjoy listening to and how WHYY can expand our services for you and your family.
