WLOY will be attending the festival hosting “What Happens Next.”

WLOY’s weekly children’s program What Happens Next?, founded in June of 2009, has won national awards. Our goal is simple: entertain children while helping them grow their imagination, reading, writing and communication skills. With more than 50 children involved in the program, we’ve done just that.
What Happens Next? begins with the simple premise that children love to tell stories. We provide the beginning of a story for the participants and they create their own endings. When they’re done we let them record them for this broadcast.


Experience the extraordinary!
