While we do air membership drives three times per year (in, roughly, January, May and September), we use detailed research to consistently reduce the hours spent asking for contributions from listeners.Your contribution at any time throughout the year always helps reduce on-air fundraising hours.

Who owns the WVXU broadcast license?
On Monday, August 22, 2005, the sale of WVXU and its affiliated stations to Cincinnati Public Radio, Inc. was finalized. At this point Cincinnati Public Radio became the official license holder for 91.7 WVXU. Cincinnati Public Radio, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation established in 1994 to operate 90.9 WGUC. It is governed by a Board of Directors.

Where does WVXU's money come from?
More than 70% of WVXU's revenue comes from the community-through contributions from individual members and businesses. Additional revenue comes from federal, state and local sources; grants from foundations; and income from events, studio rentals, merchandise sales, etc. A breakdown of WVXU's revenues and expenditures is available online. Learn more about the federal funding received by WVXU.

Is the government discontinuing funding of public broadcasting?
Thank you for your interest and concern about the future of public broadcasting. It is because of listeners like you that WVXU is able to serve the Greater Cincinnati community with the finest in news, information and entertainment programming. There are members however, who continue to call Congress for defunding public broadcasting. If they are successful, the effort would be devastating to stations across the country. From time to time, WVXU receives inquiries about an e-mail chain petition that discusses attempts by some members of Congress to eliminate public broadcasting funding. This e-mail petition is not current, but dates back to 1995. At that time, two well-meaning students at the University of Northern Colorado started the petition. Due to tremendous grassroots support at that time, Congress did not eliminate funding for public broadcasting in 1995. Rather, the appropriation was significantly reduced for a few years. It's worth noting that a recent Roper poll found that Americans list public radio and television second only to national defense when it comes to rating the value of programs supported by government largess. You can find out more about CPB's annual appropriations from Congress from The Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The funds that WVXU receives from the Corporation for Broadcasting amount to less than 7% of our operating budget. If you are looking for a way to help maintain this funding source, you can write to your representatives in Congress and encourage them to continue to support public broadcasting. You can also register your support at Protect My Public Media.
