Public Radio is a Partnership Between You, Us, and Our Community: Here's Why We Need Your Help

Oct 18, 2012

Dear Friend of Public Radio Tulsa,

Thank you for listening and for your continuing financial support. Thanks to listeners like you and a growing group of Oklahoma foundations, businesses and corporations, we've been able to continue to expand our program offerings to you.

This year, we’ve welcomed an addition to our news team: reporter Catherine Roberts. We’ve also continued to be a part of the StateImpact Oklahoma partnership with investigative reporting from across the state. I hope that you can hear the difference as I do, in our continuing investment in a local news initiative.

As always, we strive to be a good steward of your trust. With that in mind, I am asking for your continued support of KWGS, KWTU and Public Radio Tulsa. The on-air portion of our Fall Fund Drive  is scheduled for October 20-27. Our goal is $200,000, which pays about half of our yearly programming fees from NPR, our other national programmers, and local producers.

There are many interesting new programs coming down the pipeline. Some you’re already hearing like Radiolab, Freakonomics, and the TEDtalks, and more are in development. Your investment in PRT will insure we’ll all be able to hear these programs on-air and online.

Please renew your support to Public Radio Tulsa. Your early response reduces the amount of time spent fundraising on-air, and will encourage many other of our listeners to join the public radio community during the fund drive. I promise your gift will repay you throughout the year with programming that will inform, entertain, engage, and at our best, move you.

My very best to you, 

Rich Fisher
Public Radio Tulsa General Manager
