The campaign, which began on March 5, encouraged people to join through monthly contributions and two-thirds of donors signed-up as sustaining members.
“We are extremely grateful for the generous support from our listeners during this drive and all throughout the year,” said General Manager Tim Eby. “Our members make it possible for St. Louis Public Radio to serve everyone in the St. Louis community.”
