TROY – Troy University Public Radio's spring fund drive, which helps support the programming offered by the network, will kick off Saturday under the theme "Always Connected."
The drive will run through May 7, and offers different options through which supporters can make donations.
"TROY Public Radio is hard at work planning new ways to strengthen your connections to us and the world," said Kyle D. Gassiott, operations manager. "TROY Public Radio recently added the news program 'Here & Now,' produced by NPR and WBUR, to the noon hour. We've already heard from listeners how much they appreciate the way that 'Here & Now,' along with 'In Focus with Carolyn Hutcheson,' brings you the latest news and information from around the world and across our listening area."
TROY Public Radio also offers programming such as "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered," "Fresh Air," "Marketplace," "Performance Today," "American Routes" and the "Sundilla Radio Hour."
"TROY Public Radio is where you go when you want to hear in-depth, thoughtful and trusted news and information or when you need to be musically inspired," Gassiott said. "We hope our listeners will take a moment to pledge their support so that they will know they can always stay connected to the world."
