Tune into WLRA-FM for holiday music 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from Nov. 28- Dec. 25. Newly released Christmas hits from Kelly Clarkson will be played this year. Listeners can tune in via radio at 88.1 FM, iHeartRadio, iPhone app or online at www.lewisu.edu/wlra.
The WLRA Christmas programming will feature sacred, traditional, contemporary and new hits for people of all tastes and ages. The Christmas programming as well as the university’s Andrew Center of Electronic Media are made possible with the help of a grant from the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation.
WLRA-FM has switched to all Christmas music for the past 14 years as part of the annual “Christmas Memories for You and Your Family,” a benefit broadcast for the United Way of Will County. Instead of commercials, WLRA will air brief public service announcements about United Way agencies in Will County.
“It’s our Christmas gift to the community. Our students are honored to use their skills in the radio industry to help others in the various United Way programs,” John Carey, director of the Andrew Center of Electronic Media, commented.
WLRA has been on the air for more than 38 years. WLRA’s programming includes news and sports coverage, coverage of Lewis University events and a wide variety of music. Students and faculty involved with WLRA are committed to community service and have produced several marathon broadcasts to benefit United Way of Will County, local children’s hospital and many others.
The United Way of Will County is a local, not-for-profit organization that raises money annually to support local human care services provided by local, not-for-profit agencies. With financial contributions from the community, United Way is helping and changing lives every day
