Hit-Mix 88.9 WEIU Adopt a Watt 2016

Charleston, IL, November 30, 2016– It is that time of the year for Adopt A Watt for EIU’s student radio station Hit-Mix 88.9 WEIU.

Adopt A Watt is the yearly fundraiser Hit-Mix holds, and it is the one week of the year when the station asks for something in return from its listeners.  This year, Hit-Mix is asking the Eastern students to help by donating any monetary amount they are comfortable giving by going online or calling on air and pledging a donation.  The station needs the donations to keep running since it does not receive money from the school to operate.

Hit-Mix broadcasts EIU sports for students to follow their fighting Panthers and plays all varieties of music ranging from the 1960s to the present.  It also allows students to train for their future careers and have fun being on the air for Coles County.  All donations are accepted as they help keep the station up and running for its student listeners and staff.
