Sunday is the first day of our 2013 fall membership drive! This is the time of year when we ask you to become a new or renewing supporter of WKU Public Radio.
We're looking to raise $50,000 by Saturday evening, and your role is critical!
How does it work? All it takes is a few minutes on the phone and pledge of your financial support. It's how public radio works. You depend on us to bring you outstanding programs like Weekend Edition, Fresh Air, Barren River Breakdown, and All Things Considered when you tune into WKU Public Radio.
Likewise, we depend on you to help us pay for those programs! When everybody who benefits from listening to WKU Public Radio contributes a bit of their resources, it makes this service possible for you, your family, and your community.
You can sign up as a new or renewing members right now by calling 1-800-599-9598, or by pledging online.
We have a great set of thank-you gifts, including a brand-new WKU Public Radio sweatshirt (sizes S-2XL), the WKU Public Radio baseball cap, and the NPR "Eyemax" coffee mug.
Thanks for your membership support of WKU Public Radio!
WKU Public Radio's fall fundraiser is set to run Oct. 20-26, and we're looking for volunteers to help us out!
Volunteers help answer phones and assist in other ways behind the scenes to make our fundraisers a success. It's another way in which we depend on the support of our loyal listeners to make sure we have the resources necessary to pay for all of the wonderful programs on WKU Public Radio.
If you're interested in volunteering for a shift, send Jean Secrest an email here. Jean will get back with you ASAP with information on which shifts are still unfilled.
WKU Public Radio would like to introduce you to our newest news reporter, Emil Moffatt!
Emil joined us this week, and is quickly learning the ropes. He came to Bowling Green after working as a news anchor and feature reporter at WBAP radio in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX.
Emil will become the full-time local voice during All Things Considered on WKU Public Radio, anchoring our local newscasts and breaks, and producing feature stories that will air during ATC and Morning Edition. He will also contribute to our online and social media efforts.
In addition to his work on the air and online, Emil instantly becomes the go-to expert for baseball knowledge at WKU Public Radio. Before taking the job at WBAP, Emil was the play-by-play broadcaster for the minor-league Ft. Worth Cats baseball team.
Listen out for Emil's voice in the coming days and weeks, and help us welcome him to Kentucky!
Do you have a living will? A living will is a legal document that indicates the types of medical treatments and life-sustaining measures you want and don't want, such as mechanical breathing (respiration and ventilation), tube feeding or resuscitation.
Adults throughout the area can complete a living will free of charge on Saturday, May 18th.
Stop by anytime between 9am and 3pm at the Campbell Lane branch of Citizens First Bank in Bowling Green.
Leave in minutes with your living will signed, notarized, copied, and legal.
WKU Public Radio is here thanks to listeners who become members.
Show your support for WKU Public Radio during our Spring Membership Drive and you'll be entered into a drawing for one of several prizes, including a $500 Amazon gift card, a vacation getway at Barren River State Park, one of five signed copies of The Kentucky Barbecue Bookby WKU Professor Wes Berry, and a pair of 3-day passes to the ROMP music festival in Owensboro.
You can see contest rules and details here. The deadline is April 27th. And thanks for everything you do to make our programs possible!
