WMHB & Colby’s Response to COVID-19

WMHB & Colby’s Response to COVID-19

Dear WMHB DJs and Community,

Unfortunately due to the closing of Colby’s campus in response to COVID-19, we will have to cancel all programming at WMHB until further notice. I understand this is a difficult time for Colby’s community and we are all still trying to figure out what’s next. Students are being asked to leave by Sunday March 15th and visitors will not be allowed on campus for the remainder of the semester. For more information, please visit http://www.colby.edu/covid-19/. I wish everyone the best of luck in these difficult times, and I hope you understand our decision to temporarily close the station. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out. We will do our best to reply and assist in any way we can. Thank you for being apart of WMHB this semester.

Best,
Manny, Adjoa, Luke + WMHB Staff

If you have any questions or would like to apply to have your show added to our automation, please email manager@wmhb.org.
