St. Louis Public Radio wraps most successful spring fund drive in station’s history

St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU’s spring Membership Campaign concluded Friday raising $520,000 from 4,200 pledges. That’s an increase of 19 percent from the previous year’s spring drive. Of the total pledges, 1,580 were from first-time contributors.

The campaign, which began on March 17, is one of two annual, on-air membership campaigns held by the station.

“Our listeners have certainly made a statement about the importance of public radio in our community,” General Manager Tim Eby said. “Through their generous support, St. Louis Public Radio has, once again, not only reached its campaign goal but exceeded it. We are truly grateful for everyone’s support.”

Proceeds from all membership campaigns at St. Louis Public Radio allow the station to purchase syndicated public radio programs, as well as fund local news production and general station operations.

St. Louis Public Radio is a member-supported service of the University of Missouri–St. Louis. It broadcasts in HD on 90.7, 90.7-2, 90.7-3 and reaches nearly 244,500 people each week in the bi-state area.
