Positive Alternative Radio WPER/Fredericksburg is moving Eric & Heather (Eric Calhoun and Heather Shelley) to mornings beginning Monday, January 23rd. The team joined WPER last August and have been hosting afternoons since then.
WPER General Manager Frankie Morea explained, “Eric and Heather already have a great connection with our listeners,” Morea said. “I’m beyond excited they are ready to take on mornings.”
The team replaces Mike Kelly and Megan Billingsley, who are pursuing other interests.
Eric and Heather joined WPER after career stops at EMF’s Air1 network and WRCM/Charlotte and are celebrating ten years of working in Christian radio together.
“I love the energy of a morning show,” Eric said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to minister to people as they start their day.”
Heather agreed, saying that she is looking forward to creating a special listening experience for WPER’s audience.
“This is a very special radio station in a thriving, important part of our country here in the backyard of the nation’s capital,” Heather said. “We get to shine the light of the Gospel for people, and encourage them by helping them keep their minds on Christ.”
