Here’s how you can support Troy Public Radio

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — Troy Public Radio (TPR) has completed another Spring Fund Drive.

Three times a year TPR, which is a non-profit radio station, hosts a fund drive to encourage listeners to donate.

“We go to our listeners and remind them that public radio is brought to them by them,” said Director of Radio Kyle Gassiott. “We are a public radio station and that means that the majority of the resources that come in to pay for programming comes from listeners.”

“Call into the station and give whatever is that they can,” Gassiott told TrojanVision. “We don’t have a set amount. Whatever it is you can give helps out.”

According to Gassiott, donations help TPR pay for its programming.

“All the money that we receive goes right to back into the programming that we pay for from NPR, and that we also produce locally, so there really are a lot of ways that the listeners can support us. It’s really important that listeners know that everything that we do here is set up for them.”
