Young Friends of 90.7 WMFE
You like to have fun and love public radio. We do too!
Young Friends of 90.7 WMFE is an initiative launched in 2016 by 90.7 WMFE to engage and connect with young (and young-at-heart) public radio listeners throughout the Central Florida community.
Our group is part of NPR Generation Listen, a movement to connect the next generation of public radio listeners to their local stations. We look forward to exchanging ideas and having smart conversations online, over the air and at events.
Stay up to date with Young Friends by joining our Facebook group!
|Third Annual ZipOdes: What makes your Central Florida neighborhood great? In honor of National Poetry Month (April), 90.7 WMFE wants you to pay tribute to the least poetic definition of where you live: The ZIP Code. Each ZIP code is five numbers, so each “ZipOde” is five lines-the number of words in each line is determined by the number in your particular zip code. Select ZipOde poems will be read on the air and at a ZipOde Throwdown at the end of April. Details: www.wmfe.org/zipodes|
|ContinuED School Supply Drive: Young Friends of 90.7 WMFE invites you to participate in our school supplydrive to provide vital supplies to students in need throughout the school year.
