This Is It

Mar 21, 2014

Dear WEMU Friends:  

  This is it.  The last day of  WEMU's Spring Pledge Drive.  More than $140,000 has been pledged since March 13; if yours was among them, please accept our grateful thanks.  If you have not yet made your gift to WEMU, please do so now to help us raise the last $58,000.

 It will take a record day to meet that last chunk of our goal but we have been here before and we have been successful.

So, now it comes down to you and your relationship with WEMU.  Is local radio important to you?  Or is it a thing of the past?  Is there still an engaged audience for live-hosted jazz and blues?  Or is syndication the way to go? It's your choice. 

In an area rich with public radio, WEMU is a risk taker.  Despite its higher costs, we maintain a hyper-local, dual format based on news and music because you have told us that's what's important to you.  This format requires greater resources than network-heavy formats, especially human resources.  But we think it's worth it. 

Do you? 

It's the last day of our Spring Pledge Drive.  We must have $58,000 to reach our $200,000 goal.  If you have already given a gift this spring, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  If you have not, please make your gift now.

WEMU's future depends on it.

Sincerely,

 Molly Motherwell 89.1 WEMU General Manager  

Please make your spring gift online right now.
