Help KPR Replace Their Aging Transmitters
Thanks to amazing support from some very generous KPR listeners, Kansas Public Radio has raised over 75% of the $351,000 needed to replace all four of our aging transmitters, and we need YOUR help to reach the finish line. If you depend on KPR for news, music and entertainment, consider a contribution toward this special fund. Gifts of any size will ensure access to high-quality public radio for a large portion of KPR's listening area for the next 15-20 years.
Today only, we have $15,000 in matches available, thanks to a $5,000 pledge from Ramon and Glenda Schmidt, and a $10,000 challenge from Roy and Bev Menninger, former chairs of the KPR Advisory board.
KPR's transmitters, located in Lawrence, Emporia, Junction City and Chanute, are reaching the end of their lifespans. They're outdated and difficult to maintain, and our engineers spend a lot of time traveling to transmitter sites to diagnose issues and repair equipment. New transmitters can be monitored remotely, allowing KPR engineers to focus on other projects, and will be more energy-efficient and less costly to maintain, saving the station and KU thousands of dollars each year in utility costs and replacement parts.
Contribute today during One Day. One KU. to help us achieve this important goal...and thank you!
