Note from the WPKN General Manager
We are a community, non-profit radio station, dedicated to providing you with music and other entertainment, public affairs, news and some companionship during this time of disruption.
As always, all of our programming and content is produced by volunteers — people like you, who live in your community and may even be your neighbors.
I want to thank you for your continued financial support, your listenership and letting us be a part of your lives. We have not done any fundraising since February. With the end of our fiscal year approaching, we are taking small and careful steps in that direction.
Below is a ‘special’ appeal letter we are sharing in this eNewsletter. We have also pre-sent this letter to a limited group of donors.
It was written by our Director of Development, Richard Epstein with some input from the board. I think the letter is very thoughtful and reinforces our identity and some of our current challenges. We thank you for any additional help you can offer us at this time — if your circumstances allow it.
I also want to let you know that WPKN successfully worked through People’s United Bank and the SBA and we were able to receive a PPP grant.
Steve di Costanzo, GM of Community Radio WPKN 89.5-FM (Bridgeport)
