Do you enjoy the NPR programming WUTC carries? Do you discuss stories you’ve heard with family, friends and work colleagues, or have you discovered a new favorite musician by listening?
If so, now is the time to show your support for WUTC FM 88.1, the public radio station licensed to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. WUTC starts on-air fundraising soon, and we need support from all our listeners to pay programming costs for the next year.
Listeners like you provide vital funding for WUTC. Because we are a non-profit, non-commercial radio station, we rely on your donations to help pay for Morning Edition, All Things Considered, local music shows, and all the other programs you love. Please make a contribution.
WUTC is offering a great incentive for you to support public radio in Chattanooga. Anyone who becomes a member or renews their membership between September 1st and September 26th will be automatically entered to win a 5-night Hawaii Waikiki vacation, including round trip airfare for two from Chattanooga. To be eligible, all entries must be received by 5 pm September 26th.
WUTC-FM, the public radio station licensed to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, was a winner of a 2013 regional Edward R. Murrow Award for a news documentary. The region includes radio and television stations from Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia. The news documentary, produced by Mary Helen Miller, was titled 'Just Plumb Gone': A Year after the Tornado in Apison, Tennessee. The award-winning radio documentary will be re-run on WUTC 88.1 FM Monday, April 29th at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST.
