On Thursday, March 16, the President released a "skinny budget," which recommended defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The skinny budget is an outline of the administration's discretionary funding priorities. It is not law. Instead, the President's submission of this document to Congress marks the beginning of the annual budget and appropriations process. 

89.1 WBOI's Warp Drive is happening now!

Everyone who pledges a financial contribution between now and the end of the Fall Fund Drive will be entered into a drawing for an Apple iPhone 7. No contribution is required to enter. See full details and contest rules here.

Update: Power was restored to our studios at approximately 3pm. We are working on restoring WBNI to broadcast, as well as our online streaming radio services. WBOI is broadcasting as normal.

  Fund drive is here! We've got some great incentives for you, including the new Alabama Shakes album! The most important reason to make a financial contribution, however, is because you listen.

Tuesday is the release of the new Alabama Shakes album, "Sound and Color." You may have heard NPR's coverage of this unique, grammy-nominated American rock band

**This drawing has ended. A winner will be announced later this week.**

WBOI's Spring Fund Drive starts this Friday, April 17th.

Everyone who pledges a financial contribution between now and Monday, April 20 at 6:00pm will be entered into a drawing for a new Apple Watch™! No contribution is required to enter. See full details and contest rules here.

As 89.1 WBOI continues to grow and expand our news and programs, we must also continue to grow financial support from our listeners.

WBOI's Sustaining Members represent a reliable, steady, and incredible source of funding for the community news coverage and NPR programs you can hear every day on WBOI.

Classical 94.1 WBNI is holding a special Fall Fund Drive to provide support exclusively for the 24-hour classical music station.

Rent for the tower on which 94.1 WBNI broadcasts recently increased from $100 a month to $1,200 a month. This special fund drive is aimed at making up the additional cost to keep classical music on the radio.

Listeners of WBNI can pledge online or call 1-800-471-9264 to make a financial contribution.

89.1 WBOI would like to congratulate Max and Diane Clem, winners of the Fall Fund Drive drawing for a trip for two to London.

"I never win anything," Max told David Hunter, Membership Director of 89.1 WBOI. "We've been to Europse once before, and we've always wanted to go back, but we weren't sure we'd ever be able to."

89.1 WBOI would like to thank Travel Leaders and their partners at Globus Family of Brands for donating the vacation package prize for the drawing. 

Our congratulations to Rob Simon of Fort Wayne, our Spring Fund Drive iPad winner!

Once again, thank you to everyone who pledged during our Spring Fund Drive. If you didn't get a chance, you can still pledge online.

Just a little time left to pledge for 89.1 WBOI during our Spring Fund Drive. Don't let another season go by without your financial support for the news and entertainment programs you love and enjoy every day. Call 1-800-471-9264 or pledge online now.

And when you pledge this morning, your pledge will be matched dollar for dollar, thanks to a pair of longtime donors to WBOI and WBNI, who wish to remain anonymous. Pledge now.
