“Celebrate” Series

Special thanks to the Lorain County Visitor’s Bureau for sponsoring our celebration series!




The WEOL Morning Show is getting back out into the community! Each month we “celebrate” one of our local Lorain County communities and focus on the businesses and people that make those communities go! It’s fun, live, and local! Let’s all celebrate our local communities together on WEOL!

Check out our previous editions of our “Celebrate” series below. Simply click on the name of the interview you’d like to hear!
