Plug Aways

Every Monday morning on WINA’s Morning News we turn over the radio station to any and all Charlottesville-area non profit groups to help you let everyone know what you have coming up.  We open up the WINA studio lines at 6:40am, 7:40am and 8:40am and we’ll give you a minute to tell everyone about your event.  The spots fill up quickly so you can take your chances and call in (at 977-1070) at those times or you can email Jane Foy to schedule a plug away ahead of time.

Want more info on the Plug Aways you heard on WINA’s Morning News with Rick & Jane? Just click the links below.
