It’s that time of year again — the Annual WESU Spring Pledge Drive is back in an effort to support another community driven radio season! This spring, WESU will close out a capital campaign that started at the beginning of 2014, when the station kicked of its landmark 75th anniversary year. Meeting their pledge goal this spring will enable WESU to utilize funds raised towards some much-needed studio updates, including a new audio mixing console in the air studio, as well as other technical improvements that will strengthen infrastructure and better accommodate live in-studio performances. Additionally, these upgrades will also enable WESU to broadcast from remote locations.
Following a successful and exhilarating 75th anniversary year, those at the station hope that they can again count on you to keep the momentum going this spring as they bring their campaign to a close. Those at the station are also pleased to offer two awesome new T-shirt designs (which you can see on their website — wesufm.org) this spring, as well as some changes to their online giving system that they hope will improve the online donation experience. You can donate online at www.wesufm.org/pledge or by send a check to WESU Radio, 45 Broad St, 2nd fl, Middletown, CT 06457.
