I want to thank everyone -- listeners, donors, underwriters, staff, and board members -- who together raised over $1 million in under nine days for WAMC/Northeast Public Radio. Thousands of listeners pledged their support, either in the "locked box" before the drive, online, or by calling in during the on-air portion of the drive.

I am humbled by your generosity and want you to know how very grateful we all are.


Albany, N.Y.

The writer is president and CEO WAMC/Northeast Public Radio.
