WPKN: On the Move!

For Further Information call WPKN General Manager, Steve di Costanzo 203-331-9756

After more than five decades in the Student Center at the University of Bridgeport (since 1965), listener-supported WPKN Radio (89.5 FM) is making a timely move to “Bijou Square” in downtown Bridgeport to be closer to listeners, public transportation and the city’s burgeoning arts scene.

Your contribution, no matter how small, helps WPKN achieve our MOVE goals. We have started renovations in the new space to create a contemporary, state-of-the-art sound studio that meets the needs of the future and the community.

Remember, you’re not “buying” a product. You’re donating to realize our dream. And, WPKN is a 501(c)(3) so your donation might also help you at tax time.

The WPKN 2021 Move Capital Campaign aims to raise an additional $125,000 for new equipment and $275,000 to renovate and adapt the new Fairfield Avenue space to the station’s needs.

Select from one of the many donation opportunities below that allow you to engage with WPKN or use our “name your amount” donation page.
