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!
We encourage you to remain engaged and vocal on the issue of federal funding for public broadcasting. To show your support for public broadcasting and/or stay up-to-date with the developments on the FY 2012 budget discussion, you can add your name to the 170 Million Americans campaign.
Raise Your Voice is an exclusive free sampler of 16 tracks supporters can download, featuring artists that support the 170 Million Americans campaign.
If you can't reach out in person, we encourage you to contact your Congress members. We’ve provided a list of N.C.’s delegation below.
Thank you for your continued support of WDAV and public broadcasting.
