Brownsburg, IN – WYRZ 98.9 FM, a Hendricks County nonprofit radio station, has announced they will be starting a new series of programs every Wednesday night at 7pm. The programs will feature local community affair subjects as well as arts & entertainment and will be underwritten by Duke Energy.
“Since WYRZ began three years ago, it’s been a goal to increase local interest programs,” Executive Director Shane Ray said. “With Duke Energy’s sponsorship, WYRZ will include more local talent addressing issues important in our community, as well as a comprehensive look at the local arts scene.”
Ray will continue as the host of Central Indiana Today airing the first Wednesday of the month. Then the succeeding Wednesdays will offer new voices and subjects.
The new shows and hosts are:
Conversations About Living Young will feature Marina Keers as the host on the second Wednesday of each month. Marina is the Executive Director of Hendricks County Senior Services. The program will feature her speaking with experts in Hendricks County on subjects pertaining to life after retirement as well as the Senior Center itself.
Stage and Stuff will be about the arts & entertainment scene in and around Hendricks County. The hosts will be Deanna Hindsley and Peg Glover on the third Wednesday every month. Both are heavily involved with the Hendricks County Arts Council and are eager to shed light on local area talent. The guests will range anywhere from sculptors to painters, and actors to writers.
The fourth Wednesday of the month will bring local journalist Gus Pearcy back to the microphone for an as yet to be named new program. It is about how government and business decisions are made in the donut counties of Hendricks County and how they affect each other.
All the show will be archived at WYRZ.org for listening any time, after they air on 98.9FM. There will also be a Facebook page dedicated to the programs with pictures and videos when possible.
