WUTC FM-88.1 reached its spring membership drive and netted $140,000 dollars towards funding the radio station’s programming costs.  The public radio station licensed to The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is the region’s source for programming from National Public Radio, including awarding winning programs like “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”

“We want to thank everyone who was a part of this effort to raise this much money,” said program director, Mark Colbert. “We now have the financial support to keep providing the informational, musical, and entertainment programs that our audience loves.”

According to Robin Higgins, WUTC’s membership coordinator, many listeners have become sustaining members.  They make a commitment to set aside money each month to assist with the radio station’s programming costs.

WUTC recently won a prestigious 2013 Edward R. Murrow Award for the story “Just Plumb Gone: A Year After the Tornado in Apison, Tennessee” by Mary Helen Miller.  Listen to the story here.
