Federal Funding For Public Broadcasting

You Did It!

During recent budget debate, WDAV listeners were vocal about their support of public broadcasting, and in December, the 2012 budget was finalized, including a commitment to public broadcasting.
 
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting will receive $445 million in 2012, and this funding helps support WDAV’s programming. About 10-12% of our budget every year comes from CPB, and we use it to bring you the best classical music made in the Carolinas.
 
A recent article in The Wall Street Journal profiled stations just like WDAV. The article showed how public classical music stations have experienced a “renaissance” by offering live-streamed performances, HD broadcasting, mobile applications, and social media interaction to their listeners.
 
This renaissance would not be possible without your help. Thank you for your support of public broadcasting and WDAV throughout the year. With your help, we will remain one of American’s leading producers of original classical music programming. We look forward to continuing public media’s renaissance in the coming year!
