WKSU, a non-profit radio station held a fund drive this past weekend, to help get money to help keep the station running. Volunteers come in and take pledges from people in the community. Senior receptionist Maranda Shrewsberry told me what the Fund Drive meant to her.

WKSU’s shows make pitches during their shows during the day to get pledges from members. Director of External Affairs Mark Syroney said how public radio is different than regular.
Interview 2 “Public Radio is not that way at all, it relies on the shows it’s all about the shows and how we report the local and national news.”
