New WPR station in Ashland reaches fundraising goal
When Wisconsin Public Radio's newest radio station, WUWS 90.9 FM in Ashland, went on the air this fall there was still a lot of work to be done to pay for construction.
A federal grant for 75 percent of the costs was secured and WPR committed to a local match of $85,000.
"We were confident that we would meet our fundraising goal before the end of the year," said WPR Director Mike Crane, "but until you have the funds in place, you can never be certain."
