That is one of the most frequent questions we hear. It’s hard to set deadlines for yourself, especially when a lot of things depend on other people to happen, but deadlines are […]
I wasn’t sure if we were going to have enough people to do this, but we pulled the Easter Rabbit out of a hat and managed to get enough people as of yesterday! If you have been wondering about what WWER will be about but did not attend the March 30 meeting, please feel free […]
We got our first press coverage in the April 3rd Edition of Westmoreland News. Reporter and Colonial Beach resident Suzy Pietras-Smith attended the organizational meeting on March 30th, and filed the story below. Funny thing was, I didn’t spot it myself but had it called to my attention by somebody in my building at work […]
The Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce have graciously invited WWER to share a corner of their office for 6 months while we figure out where we will live on a more permanent basis! Thanks for the free space! We are investigating a more permanent solution, but this will take the pressure off for our very […]

Most are working without any formal titles, but soon we will start to name people to positions (in an ‘acting’ role) to start creating some structure […]
Thanks again to all those who attended our first meeting. I think the lovely weather may have kept some people outside instead of in a meeting, but those who attended had a nice discussion of what lies ahead. We had a nice mix of people with some skills that we will need for WWER. We […]
The FCC paperwork to assign the license of WWER to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation was officially filed March 19. Typically it takes the FCC 30 to 60 days to act on these requests. “Stay tuned” for further updates!
I’ve been coming to Colonial Beach for more than 10 years (I’ve had a house here nearly that long), but never knew that there was a radio station licensed to the town that started in 2009. Then one day I read that there was one, and that the licensee no longer wanted to broadcast. As […]
