Thanks for supporting WCBE at our VIP membership level. The following tickets are available to current VIP members in October!


The Membership Director helps listeners understand the importance of becoming donors to keep WCBE on the air.  Reporting directly to the General Manager, the Membership Director shapes, produces, and is responsible for listener-based fundraising – particularly our big Spring and Fall on-air fund drives, including the accompanying direct mail and e-mail campaigns, theme development, premium design and production, staff pitch guidance, and volunteer coordination.  The Membership Director also develops other fundraising efforts; the more creative, the better!

From all of us at WCBE: THANK YOU! You donated over $195,000 during our Fall on-air fundraiser. That will go a long way in helping us keep your favorite programs on the air through the spring. And for those of you who didn't have the chance to give, it's not too late to donate!

The drive fell about $69,000 short...so you can still make a difference. Just send a check to:

WCBE is currently broadcasting with our old analog transmitter while we await repairs on the new digital unit. You may hear a bit of static on the signal.

You can still listen to our broadcast via iTunes Radio, on our website at wcbe.org, and on the NPR News App. Android users can listen via the TuneIn radio app as well. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will update soon. Thanks!

 The WCBE Fall Fund drive is coming soon, and we've got big news: for every $25,000 received on or before October 15th, we will eliminate a day of on-air fundraising at the beginning of the drive! So your donation is key!  

Thanks to listener support, WCBE has been able to provide you with the finest news, information, entertainment, and music available on radio today. Each week, nearly 80,000 prove that when they tune in to 90.5 FM.
