WMUK begins fall fund drive

Oct. 9, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- National Public Radio station WMUK-FM will take its case for support to its listeners Oct. 13-19 when it launches the on-air pledging portion of a fall fund-raising drive aimed at raising $220,000.

The amount for the drive is the same goal the station set for both 1999 and 2000. The station receives support from Western Michigan University and from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and relies on listeners for program support.

To minimize the necessity of on-air pledging, WMUK Station Manager Floyd Pientka is asking listeners to respond to the station's mail campaign by sending in their contributions early or make their donations on the station's secure server at <www.wmuk.org>. The station plans to stop on-air pledging the moment the $220,000 goal is met.
