About Friends Of WLRN

| The Overhead Myth »

Friends are the people in life you can really count on. And for WLRN, our friends are the viewers and listeners we count on to help create and deliver quality programming. The Friends of WLRN include thousands of families and individuals from all over South Florida along with hundreds of businesses, all providing crucial support by giving time, treasure or talent to WLRN.

Your contribution enables us to bring you the best in national and local programs, because all of the programs you love require significant investments on our part. Our national program schedules bring you the best from NPR, PBS, APM, PRI and others, but we pay high annual fees to obtain these programs on your behalf. Your direct financial support is essential.

At the local level, we produce a broad array of programs that focus on the issues and assets of communities all across our region. On radio and television, your membership dollars create comprehensive and insightful coverage of topics that affect your life.

When you make a contribution to Channel 17 or 91.3 WLRN, your funds have a direct and immediate impact on programming. Your support enables the continuous growth of the station to meet the challenges of technology and opportunity. And that's not the only reason to become a partner in our progress.
