WKU Public Radio's fall fundraising campaign wrapped up Saturday evening with $51,000 in membership support pledged over the phones and online.
We can't thank our supporters enough for their amazing generosity! It was an incredible and humbling week for the entire staff, as we truly saw the impact public radio has on the lives of our listeners.
We realize nobody has to give to public radio. The fact that so many choose to do so says a lot about the connection this station has with its listeners.
We also want to thank the many volunteers who answered phones this week and contributed to the behind-the-scenes efforts.
In the coming days and weeks, enjoy the commercial-free, uninterrupted news, music, and entertainment programs. If you're a member of WKU Public Radio, you made it possible!
