Listeners are on fire




There’s no other way to put it, given the tremendous financial support we’re seeing during this spring member drive.  It’s hard to express how gratifying it is to watch this level of response to our requests for listener membership.

We’re coming down to the wire, and it’s clear that you’ve taken to heart the news that funding for public radio might soon be going away.  For KPCC that would mean having to raise a million-dollars a year more than we do now.  Otherwise, we’d have to significantly cut back our service.

With this outpouring from listeners who want to provide the buffer we need, I feel so confident that we can be prepared for whatever happens.  It’s still somewhat frightening, but I’ve never had more faith in the generosity of listeners.

Thank you for your support and investment in KPCC’s mission.  You mean more than I can express.
