New York City public station WFUV(FM) set a sation fundraising record for its semi-annual on-air membership pledge drive to raise funds for station essentials, such as equipment and programming costs. The event took place from April 17-25, and the total of $609,000 exceeded WFUV's goal of raising $600,000. As a non-commercial station, member support accounts for 70% of the station's operating budget.
"We welcome 1,550 new members to the WFUV community and extend our sincerest gratitude to our renewing members," said WFUV General Manager Ralph Jennings.
