Stay tuned to WURD all this week for exciting changes to our weekday schedule, including the addition of an early-riser news broadcast called Daybreak at WURD and the introduction of a 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. weeknight block titled The Power Hour!

Vine Memorial Baptist Church’s Community Outreach Ministry is holding a pre-election forum where key issues for the upcoming election season can be discussed.
