The MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM Programming, Promotions and Production departments took a moment to pause and celebrate their many great achievements of 2019. The group gathered for dinner at the Raleigh Beer Garden on Wednesday, January 29, 2020.
WRAL-FM Program Director Michele Williams came up with the idea to fete the team.
“We were celebrating our successes of 2019,” she explained. “We had a successful ratings year and are currently the #1 rated radio station in the market. We were also celebrating some of our big achievements like raising over $600,000 for Duke Children’s Hospital during our Radiothon this past year.”
And besides the stellar numbers and stats, Williams wanted to honor the camaraderie and positive culture of the MIX crew.
“I wanted to celebrate not only our successes but our incredible team of people,” she said. “We have a team of motivated, committed, passionate professionals who have a huge drive to win. The thing that makes this team so special is they are also all wonderful people who truly care about each other and show it through unwavering support of each other and daily kindness and respect.”
The team appreciated the chance to reflect and salute their efforts of the past year.
“It was a great night!” said WRAL-FM Promotions Director Jason Newton. “I love when we all get together as a team in an informal setting.”
Williams continued, “They truly care about people not just in the building but out in our community. They are the most caring group of individuals I’ve ever worked with and I think the combination of their desire to be the best with their being such great human beings who aren’t afraid to show kindness and caring is what makes us such a special radio station. I wanted them to know everything they do is appreciated and to be celebrated.
