90.5 WASU at the Horton Hotel

If you live in Boone, you have probably already stopped by the new Horton Hotel, located on King Street right across from the Mast General Store. 90.5 WASU is excited to be spending the afternoon of Tuesday, September 17 on the Horton’s Rooftop Lounge! Stop by any time between 4-8pm. We will be there with our prize wheel while playing our station for all the streets of Boone to hear! KT Leigh’s Boutique will be there as well offering HALF OFF glasses of wine with any purchase from their boutique. If that’s not enough to get you excited, there will also be a raffle for a $75 gift card to Makoto’s Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar!

 

Hurricane Dorian – WASU Cares

Just a few weeks into the school year and communities all around the East Coast had to prepare for yet another hurricane. More than 300,000 North Carolina residents were under mandatory evacuation for a few days in preparation for the storm. Fortunately, the storm had reduced in size significantly and the damage in the Carolinas was much less than anticipated. However, Hurricane Dorian wreaked havoc in many neighborhoods and communities throughout the Bahamas before even reaching the East Coast of the US. The catastrophic winds and record breaking rainfall of Hurricane Dorian did not slow down for days, leaving the island nation in shambles. 

 

 

 

 

Here at WASU, we greatly value our community and the communities around us. We are thinking about those who have been affected by Hurricane Dorian.

WASU had a great summer participating in events around campus! Four staff members, Nate Saunders, Kiera Massi, Marnie Bonn, and Patrick Mullaney ran and worked to promote our station through participation in first-year orientation, high school station tours, and summer giveaways. Now, with the summer behind us, we are looking forward to a great school year and having all of our staff members and DJs back in the station!
