Answer Phones for WTTW Channel 11 (winter 2012 weekend edition)

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE carefully and r.s.v.p. ONLY IF   you are committed to helping out on this date and time for the entire duration of the volunteer shift.



Every few months, Channel 11 airs their best prime time shows for 2-3 weeks and hold a pledge drive. This is collecting donations over the phone from viewers in order to keep the station running. I've been doing this AT LEAST once a quarter since 2003. Always a lot of fun. Some of these intermissions are aired on the same day as the taping. All of them are repeated throughout the year. Great way to brush up on yor phone skills.


I had a chance to meet a bunch of you throughout several pledge drives last quarter. Hope you enjoyed yourselves as well. So we're back again this winter. WTTW has Chicago Fun Volunteers scheduled for Saturday afternoon/evening December 8th. This shift will be from 1:00pm-6:30pm


I will contact all  Yes respondents via e-mail with relevant information. Space is extremely limited and WTTW depends on every volunteer who agrees to help answer their phones. Please make sure you are committed to this date and time, and COMMITTED TO THE ENTIRE SHIFT. If you can't make it, then be sure to change your RSVP immediately so as to give another volunteer a chance to sign up.


SO with each shift, volunteers are usually fed. (lunch or dinner, depending on the shift time) Also, there will be free volunteer parking at the studio lot for the duration of your shift

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Always a pleasure to meet new members to the Fun Volunteers. Call frequesncy could've been a bit more steady. But I think this pace was good for first timers to this volunteer project.
