About 10 years ago I realized I was listening to WVXU more and more and on a daily basis. It was then I made my first donation during a fund drive. Today my radio is almost exclusively tuned to WVXU. Great programming. Great local political analysts. I particular enjoy the Diane Rieme Show as well as Feesh Air, -Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me-, Car Talk and the list goes on and on. I appreciate the unbiased reporting and analysis. Today I am a sustaining member of WVXU and I'm hoping when you read this you'll give it a try!

This radio station is a huge boon to living in Cincinnati. I start every day before 6 am listening to Morning Edition. All through the day, intelligent programs are available to expand the mind. The newscasters are wonderful (including Cincinnati's own Maryanne Zeleznik). I feel I couldn't live without Cincinnati Public Radio!

I am a sustaining member of WVXU because it's the best station in Cincinnati for so many reasons. Everyday I feel I'm unbiasly informed about local, national and international news. My family and I can listen to this station and be entertained by the various programs. And I even find myself listening on Science Friday's (only because I've learned some very cool things!). Overall, WVXU has something for everyone and is an integral part of our community.
