General Information

Our seasonal Membership Drives are key to the success of 98.7WFMT’s mission. Volunteering for these drives can be a great way to meet new people or bring together a group of friends, business colleagues, or community groups in support of 98.7WFMT. Volunteer opportunities are always available to answer the busy phones during our Membership Drives. For more information, please send inquiries to the WFMT Volunteer email.


The next on-air membership drive will be Thursday, March 30, 2017 through Thursday, April 13, 2017.


Membership Drive days usually begin at 6:00 am and run until 7:00 pm. Membership Drive shift times for the upcoming Spring 2017 Membership Drive from Thursday, March 30, 2017 to Thursday, April 13, 2017 are now available.

Dress Code

It can get chilly in the studio, so we recommend bringing a sweater or jacket.


We require all new volunteers to attend an orientation/training session.

Age Requirements

All participants must be at least 16 years of age. Organizations that have youth members must supply a chaperone and can volunteer during any shift time. Youth individuals may volunteer, but can do so only during the morning and/or afternoon shifts because of curfew laws.
