Ways to Connect

We had an awesome time during our Live In Studio Session with Beebs and Her Money Makers.  The band has been thrilling audiences throughout Florida and nationally on the Van’s Warp Tour.  Beebs brought her funky 5 piece band to our studio for a fun filled set of songs.

WFIT-FM will provide special coverage from NPR on Election Night, Tuesday November 8.

NPR hosts Robert Siegel, Audie Cornish, Rachel Martin, and Ari Shapiro will co-host the special coverage from NPR headquarters in Washington, DC, from 5pm until 11pm.
