It’s Begathon time again this week as we ask our friends and listeners to help us survive into 2020 by making a contribution online or by mailing a check to WHUP, 117 W. King St., Hillsborough NC 27278. We spend much of our time stumping for other worthy causes in the Triangle, but we occasionally have to restock our own coffers in order to keep amplifying the voices of those who can most benefit from our services. We only do this twice a year because we trust that you understand the importance of truly independent media in an age of consolidation and corporate control and appreciate our diverse array of music and talk shows not duplicated elsewhere. In our four short years on the air we’ve already hosted more than 700 musicians for live in-studio sessions as well as another 800 representatives from area non-profits, local businesses, schools and the arts spotlighting the great work they’re doing – an unparalleled record!
As a non-profit, all-volunteer radio station, we rely on community support to pay the bills. More than half of WHUP’s annual revenues come from our listeners, so please help us reach our goal of $10K so we can pay the bills and improve our services. Your support is critical to our continued success. Many thanks from the 100+ volunteers at WHUP!
