KRCL 90.9 FM LISTENERS RAISE RECORD-BREAKING FUNDS
TO POWER THEIR COMMUNITY RADIO STATION
Salt Lake City, UT: KRCL 90.9 FM is proud of its listeners for raising a record-breaking amount of funds during the recent Radiothon fundraiser October 1–9, 2011.
There were over 2,000 pledges of support and 825 new members totaling a record of $276,253 raised over the 9-day drive.
KRCL comes to its listeners twice a year in the spring and fall for Radiothon, then once during the summer for a Community Drive to ask for contributions. Member and local business support accounts for more than 80 percent of the station’s operating budget.
“We are thrilled at the outpouring of support from the community,” says Amy Dwyer, KRCL’s Interim General Manager. “In these tough economic times, it’s exciting to see people supporting the music, information and community affairs programming that KRCL provides.”
KRCL was founded in 1978 and is an independent, non-profit community radio station broadcasting from its studios on 1971 West North Temple in Salt Lake City.
