Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

All this week, during 97.9 WHAV’s spring membership drive, you can “Grow the Local News You Need and the Music You Love.”

Myrna recently renewed her membership, saying she hopes WHAV will keep going. Maybe you also supported your local public radio station once, and for that WHAV thanks you very much. Maybe you thought that once was enough—that your pledge was good for years and years. Maybe you can’t remember the last time you supported WHAV. If you can’t remember, it has probably been a while.

Come back at any amount by clicking here. Greater Haverhill’s only public radio station and nonprofit local news service asks you to Grow the Local News You Need and the Music You Love.
