Public radio needs you too

Support KUTX

Public radio needs you too

Posted by on Oct 21, 2014

We’re just kicking off the Fall Membership Drive at your stations–KUTX and KUT. It’s our twice-a-year hands-on reminder of our special connection to the community and why so many of us have chosen to work in public media.

When you support KUTX and KUT it’s an expression of our reflection of the Austin Music Experience and your trust in our ability to engage audiences in Austin civic life. When people call in their pledge or donate online, many of them share comments about the role we play in their daily lives.

“Thanks for exposing me to so many great new Artist! KUTX is an Austin Treasure.”

“10 bucks a month to hear some of the best up and coming artists, and artists who might not otherwise be heard on the radio, no brainer, keep it up, love this station.”

“I’m known at the office as ‘the lady who always listens to NPR’ so it’s only right that #isupportkut by becoming a sustaining member @KUT”

“I became a sustaining member today! Thank you @KUT & @KUTX for so many years of great public radio – keep it up! #isupportkut #isupportkutx”

“As a relatively new Texan, KUT helps me feel more connected to my new home. Your thoughtful, investigative reporting helps me to be a good citizen in our community.”

“Haven’t touched the dial since I set it to 98.9! Love Fridays with ‘Old School Dance Party’ and ‘Left of the Dial.’ And Sunday mornings in the shop with Jay and Jody? Perfect!”

“I had reservations about two stations, one talk and one music, but I have found some great talk shows that I now listen to regularly and the old music standbys that I have enjoyed for years are still there as well.”

“Thank you for bringing the best local, national, and global perspective to Austin. You guys are the berries.”

We are asking for 2,000 new members during this Membership Drive. Just fill out this simple online form to make your first-ever pledge. If you’ve never donated to public radio but have been listening for years, it’s easy and it’ll make you feel good. If you’re new to Austin and you’ve been listening to KUTX and KUT since you’ve arrived, please take the few short minutes it takes to become a member.

Listener comments remind us why we do what we do each and every day. So keep those comments coming by calling (512) 471-6291 or by donating online. You can also tweet about it by using #isupportkutx.

Thank you to all the individuals, Leadership Circle members and business circle members. We can’t do this without you!
