89.1 WBOI's Warp Drive Is Back

Feb 23, 2017

Here at 89.1 WBOI, we understand that listening to thoughtful, fact-based reporting is vital, especially considering the state of today's media landscape. Now more than ever, we need conversation, perspective and diverse voices. We need the level of journalistic integrity that only public service media can provide. And in order to continue delivering reliable news coverage to our community, 89.1 WBOI needs you.

As spring approaches, so does another season of fundraising for the station. Given the success of last fall's "warp drive", we wanted to bring it back - with the same goal of limiting interruptions to the programming that WBOI listeners count on to stay informed and entertained.

If you aren't familiar, here's how this warp drive will work: Starting now, we ask you to consider donating to 89.1 WBOI. We'll continue to make donation requests through mail, emails, social media and on-air promotional spots, but there will be zero interruptions to any news, storytelling or music programs. If we raise our goal of $200,000 before March 16th, there will be no on-air fund drive. If we don't meet our goal, we will have to go LIVE on March 16th until the goal is met. We'll be unlocking a lot of special giveaways throughout the drive. To read more about the current drawing, click here. 

Last year, our listeners helped us raise over 60% of the goal before the drive started and reduced the on-air fund drive to 5 days - setting a new fundraising record for the station. Will you help us break our record? This year could be the year that we eliminate the fund drive all together.
