75 for 75
Written by wgso on January 10, 2021
In 2021, WGSO 990-AM is proud to celebrate our 75th anniversary of radio broadcasting in New Orleans. Our station is also excited to announce our transition to a 501-C-3 non-profit organization, thereby allowing WGSO 990-AM to accept tax deductible contributions from our listeners and generous benefactors.
To commemorate these milestones, our station is launching a 75 for 75 campaign. Our goal throughout 2021 will be to raise $75,000 in honor of our 75th anniversary as a radio station.
These funds will be used to support our broadcasting mission of being the “Community Voice of the Crescent City.” Unlike most of the other radio stations in New Orleans, WGSO 990-AM is locally owned and operated and not part of a national broadcasting conglomerate.
All the funds raised will allow WGSO 990-AM to make equipment upgrades and continue to broadcast a wide variety of programs. Currently, our station airs programming offered by over 20 local and national hosts on topics including politics, sports, real estate, restaurants, wine and spirits, elder care, local business, personal finances and investing, music, culture and recreation, and Bible
instruction and spirituality.
To help WGSO 990-AM achieve our aim of informing, educating, and entertaining the listeners of the Greater New Orleans area, we respectfully ask for generous contributions. Here are different ways donors can support our broadcasting mission
