89.1 WEMU

Station Blog

Last January we began a yearlong celebration of 40 years of broadcasting jazz on 89.1.  And what a year it's been. We celebrated with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and at the Detroit Music Awards with a distinguished service award. With Laith Al Saadi at our Blues Barbecue and onstage at the Detroit Jazz Festival with a special tribute.  And even with a halftime show by the EMU Marching Band.

Hi WEMU friends.

Here we are at day five of the fall pledge drive, and with your help we're working hard to make sure your community NPR station is healthy and strong and able to continue to deliver on our promise of keeping you informed and entertained. We need to raise $220,000 during this drive, and you can make that happen with your gift of support at WEMU.org or 888-299-8910.

Just One Week!

Jun 22, 2017

What a difference WEMU can make to your week… with news that keeps you connected… ideas that keep you interested… and music and conversation that brings you into the heart of the matter. One week can mean a lot to WEMU too – particularly this week!

 That’s because just one week from today, WEMU’s budget year ends and our goal right now is to raise $12,000 to hit our $100,000 summer fundraising goal.

Today we are announcing that veteran Detroit broadcaster Lisa Barry has joined the WEMU news team as the local anchor for NPR’s All Things Considered (weekdays, 4-7 p.m.).
