Non-profit, non-commercial community radio,
by the people for the people
WGDR has raised $51,900 in our End Of Year 2020 Campaign. The goal was $50k by December 31. Never in my life as a local listener, or during my tenure as Director of WGDR have I seen this station so clearly identified by its constituents as a “necessary component” of life in Central Vermont, the region, the country, the world. Goddard announced a hope to gift WGDR and WGDH to Central Vermont, and asked for your help to do so. Now, this hope has become an exciting and beautiful story. With your financial support, and Goddard staff and WGDR volunteers working tirelessly behind the scenes, the station transfer process is safely underway.
We’ve cleared the first hurdle, and WGDR/WGDH listeners deserve to feel great about it. So from all of us at WGDR, go on, take a minute to pat yourself on the back. You’re a crucial part of a beautiful and powerful cause called “true community radio.” As we continue to process the license transfer, GDR hosts and I will be updating you every step of the way here, on our FaceBook page and on the air. Every dollar given to WGDR now gives Goddard the time it needs to manage any unforeseeable challenges in turning over these radio reigns to the soon-to-be new community owners, Central VT Community Radio.
As previously stated, any remaining funding from your gifting now will follow the station at time of official FCC grant transfer and support the first budget of CVCR. So thank you, thank yourselves, and keep the dial tuned to 91.1fm, 91.7fm, and wgdr.org.
From me and the WGDR family, happy new year Central Vermont, and beyond!!!
