Wuddup world?! So many of you hang out with myself & Jovan weekly on Inner City Voices on CKUW 95.9fm in Winnipeg, that when we have a chance to give back, we do it. This week we are having our annual Fundrive – its where we raise 25% of the stations operating budget from people like yourself. Check out the website to donate here, call them at 204-774-6877 (if you want you can pledge to a certain show – ICV or another one.
ICV Goal: $300
Thanks to our listeners (Steve, Althea & matcher Nona) we made $180 on air towards our goal. The station is trying to get $60,000 by this Friday Feb 14th. I am a little sad that ICV didn’t meet its goal, but it isn’t too late. You can still call the station or donate online – your donation means voices like mine and Jovans have an opportunity to reveal voices like Altheas, Iain’s & Aprils, as we did on last night’s show! Also, if you know anyone who would be interested in getting involved in more ways than just financial, I would highly encourage you to do so!
CKUW is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization. We are allowed by the CRTC to carry some advertising on-air, but we’d rather be supported by our community and dedicated listeners. CKUW is Listener Oriented – Listener Supported as opposed to commercial radio which is Advertisier Oriented – Advertiser Supported. We believe our listeners would rather contribute to our continued operation, than have to listen to a full allotment of ads on the programs they enjoy. Anyone who cares to visit our offices and facilities will realize that we’re not spending the station’s budget on expensive knick-knacks. During Fundrive week you can pledge by phone – 204-774-6877 our friendly phone cadets are standing by! If you have any questions about our funding drive, please call station manager Rob Schmidt at (204) 786 9782 or send him an e-mail.
PS – You can check out MC on PEOPLE OF INTEREST tomorrow morning between 8 and 9am on CKUw 95.9fm!
