Troy University Public Radio to kick off spring fund drive on Friday

March 21, 2019

Troy University Public Radio’s spring fund drive, which helps support the programming offered by the network, will kick off on Friday, March 22.

The drive will run through March 29, and offers different options through which supporters can make donations. Listeners can contribute to Troy University Public Radio by calling 1-800-800-6616 or online at https://www.troy.edu/student-life-resources/campus-media/troy-public-radio/. Contributions may also be sent by mail to Troy University Public Radio, Wallace Hall, Troy University, Troy, AL 36082. All contributions are tax deductible.

The fund drive also offers listeners the opportunity to keep their support going on a monthly basis through the Monthly Sustainer Option, which enables the donor to designate a monthly gift amount.

TROY Public Radio listeners not only tune in for enlightening and thought-provoking programming, but also count on the network for news coverage, said Kyle Gassiott, operations manager.

“There’s no such thing as a typical news day. The morning of Sunday, March 3, our reporters were in Selma reporting on the 54th anniversary of the Bloody Sunday Bridge Crossing for NPR news,” Gassiott said. “That afternoon and evening, we were in Lee County reporting for NPR on the devastating tornadoes that had struck the area. We were ready with the latest news for the next day’s broadcast of ‘Morning Edition’. When it matters most, our listeners count on TROY Public Radio’s comprehensive, up-to-the-minute news coverage and insightful reporting.”

TROY Public Radio offers programming such as “All Things Considered,” “Fresh Air,” “In Focus with Carolyn Hutcheson” and “Here and Now,” along with intelligent entertainment through shows such as “Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me,” “This American Life,” and “Radiolab.”
