WGSO 75 for 75 Auction
Written by wgso on April 7, 2021
Starting April 15th WGSO990am will start running an auction to help celebrate our 75th anniversary and support our 75 for 75 Campaign. We are accepting item donations direct to the station until April 10th.
The benefits of the auction are multi-faceted. Here are some of the reasons we have embarked on this project:
- The Funds will be used to defray operating costs, which help keep our broadcast fees as low as possible
- It will help WGSO repair broken equipment and purchase new equipment that can improve the quality of our broadcast signal. Thus, all of our shows will sound better, and the signal will reach a larger broadcast area with more potential listeners and sponsors
- The ultimate goal would be to raise enough funds to purchase a FM translator so that our signal will also be carried on the FM band.
