WRKE Show of the Month: October 2018

WRKE (Salem, VA)- WRKE is excited to announce its Show of the Month for October! Each month, WRKE admin will choose and highlight a show that goes above and beyond in the planning, producing, and execution of their show.

The show of the month for October is An Hour of Dates. In a show like no other WRKE has seen before, An Hour of Dates selects a lucky bachelor or bachelorette each week that gets to know four other contestants live on air, only by the answers to compatibility questions.

Throughout the hour, the bachelor or bachelorette eliminates the contestants one by one until they find their perfect match. The happy couple is then sent out on a date, supervised by hosts Kaelyn Spickler and Destinee Harper who then report back on the air on how things went.

“I don’t think I have ever been so impressed with a show right off the bat,” Program Director Elijah Wilhelm said. “We have over 40 shows on the station but we have nothing close to this. The hours that they put in doing interviews, finding players, writing questions and scripts, and even supervising dates. This show is so much fun to listen to and you really get invested in the process and how it all turns out.”

The show sets out to keep people from getting hurt feelings by making the process entirely about compatibility. 

“This is not a beauty contest,” Spickler said. “We have whoever is in the hot seat blindfolded so they have to make their decision solely on the answers to the questions.”

“This show is super special, already has a loyal fan base and a waiting list to play,” Wilhelm said. “This is the real deal.”

You can catch An Hour of Dates Friday afternoons from 4:30-5:30, ONLY on WRKE.
