Join WHFR.FM

WHFR Staff Training classes are offered every semester at HFC.

Next Staff Training Class to begin July 2nd

What is seven sessions of two hours and can prepare you to join our volunteer staff and maybe even host a show of your own for a truly unique noncommercial FM radio and internet station?

It’s the “WHFR Staff Training Class,” of course, next to begin on July 2 and end on August 13--Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. For academic credit, enroll for Summer semester in Henry Ford College’s TCM 189-71, one hour credit, no prerequisite. For an identical experience, but non-credit (Pass or Fail), call 313-317-6600, HFC’s M-TECH program, to enroll in “Radio Station Workshop.” For more information, contact WHFR’s General Manager, Susan McGraw, at 313-845-9842, scmcgraw@hfcc.edu.


You can become a member of WHFR by enrolling in Henry Ford College''s "Staff Training" class. It''s called TCM (Telecom) 189: WHFR Staff Training.

In Staff Training, you''ll learn about station and FCC rules and procedures, equipment operation, basic performance skills, and much more. Completing the class is your first step towards being involved in WHFR regularly.

We''re always looking for creative minds to help with promotions, production, programming, and other areas within the station.

If you want to get involved with WHFR but don't plan on signing up for a degree program (or maybe you already have a degree!), Henry Ford College's M-TEC [Michigan Technical Education Center] now allows you to take the class without having to apply and be admitted to an HFC academic program, saving you some paperwork and some money--no admission fee, enrollment fee, or service fees. Either way, the basic class itself costs the same as one hour of academic credit, and the content and meeting times are the same: Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:20 PM, or Thursday afternoons from 1:10 to 3:00 PM--for eight weeks during the Fall and Winter semesters (seven during Spring & Summer). For more course information, check out the HFCC website (www.hfcc.edu) or contact our General Manager, Susan McGraw at 313-845-9842, or via e-mail: whfr-gm@hfcc.edu. For non-credit M-TEC enrollment information, call 313-317-6600.

Did you ever listen to a DJ, talk show host, or newsperson on the radio say to yourself, "Boy, I''d like to do that someday!"? That day might be right now!
