This year's collectible mug features Hugo the Cat listening to his favorite radio station 88.9 FM (image above) drawn by local artist Robert Brossart. Purchase a WCVE mug at any of the Mug Stops for $10. A special thank you to Robert Brossart for sharing his quirky and awesome artwork with the station.
