KPR announces results of Season Giving drive

Mon, 11/25/2013

LAWRENCE – In the spirit of holiday giving, listeners helped make Kansas Public Radio’s first Season of Giving mini-drive a success. 

The on-air appeals Nov. 21 during NPR’s "Morning Edition" raised $9,235 to support KPR’s new, music and entertainment shows. 

“We’ve never tried this before, and our listeners made it a great success,” Development Director Sheri Hamilton said. “It shows the generous spirit of our listeners and helped us erase a slight shortfall from our fall membership drive.”

Listeners can make a donation anytime online.

KPR, a 15-time Kansas Association of Broadcasters Station of the Year, licensed to the University of Kansas, broadcasts on 91.5 FM in Lawrence, 89.7 FM in Emporia, 91.3 FM in Olsburg-Junction City, 89.9 FM in Atchison, 90.3 FM in Chanute, and 99.5 FM and 97.9 FM in Manhattan.
