Northstate Public Radio Seeks Early Pledges and Volunteers!

Northstate Public Radio (KCHO 91.7FM, Chico ~ KFPR 88.9FM, Redding) is a broadcast service of CSU, Chico.  KCHO and KFPR are the regional affiliate of NPR and present local, regional, national and international news, as well as entertainment and a variety of musical genres.  The network’s single largest source of funding is direct listener support.

Our Fall Membership Drive begins on Friday, October 12th.  The network is striving to raise $175,000 in just nine days to meet our annual operating goals. For our Fall Drive, we’re partnering with Butte County and Shasta County libraries in a celebration of literacy. The theme of the drive is “Listening & Learning,” reminding us of the wealth of information that comes our way every day on Northstate Public Radio.

In effort to reduce the amount we need to raise on air, our Silent Drive is underway now, and allows listeners to enter the drawing for an Apple Ipad. All pledges received before Oct. 12 will be entered in the drawing.

The station is also recruiting volunteers to help answer phones during the drive.  Three-hour shifts are available from 6am to 9pm from October 12th – 20th.
