Plenty of things happening at WDFH this month, let's have a look:
New Programming: For The Greater Good
WDFH FM 90.3 and wdfh.org Westchester Public Radio has launched a new public affairs program devoted to raising community awareness about the work performed by not-for-profit organizations throughout Westchester County and beyond.
For the Greater Good made its debut last Wednesday, March 28th featuring Melissa Lang, CEO of Gilda's Club of Westchester. This week's guest is John Bell, founder of Transition Westchester. The following week, the show will feature a discussion with Nada Khader, Executive Director of WESPAC Foundation.
Hosted by Di Morgan, the half-hour interview program airs each Wednesday at 6:30pm and again each Saturday morning at 9:00am. It may also be heard via podcasts at WDFH.ORG
"There are numerous not-for-profit organizations in and around Westchester that we rarely hear about and their great work should not go unnoticed," said Morgan. "Those working in the nonprofit world are unsung heroes, and they deserve an opportunity to promote their services, activities, programs and events as well as their need for volunteers and donations," she added. A different not-for-profit group will be featured each week.
Because WDFH is completely volunteer-operated and a not-for-profit entity as well, guests and the organizations they represent are asked to reciprocate by promoting the program, and WDFH in general to their clients, volunteers, board members, supporters and constituents and place a link to the WDFH website on theirs. This enables WDFH to build its audience and perhaps generate donations if listeners enjoy what they hear.
