Help WRUR Keep Independent College Radio Alive

WRUR 88.5 is raising money for a new FM setup to replace our current board, used since the ‘90s. Sole ownership of this new board will make our radio station more independent, as well as helping to maintain the university’s long history of campus broadcasting.

  • For $50, become a “Patron of the Arts” and receive a personal video from the station thanking you, and be thanked on-air during a prime-time FM broadcast.
