CDR Radio Fund Drive Sets New Record

by Public Relations Office

Cedarville, Ohio—Listeners to the CDR Radio Network (The PATH? 90.3 FM in Dayton/Springfield), the media ministry of Cedarville University, responded to the network`s annual Ingathering fund drive by contributing or making commitments of $795,000 toward the operating needs of the non-commercial network. An additional $32,100 in gifts was designated for The Vision Fund, to be used in part to help establish new FM affiliate stations in six additional Ohio cities. CDR Radio Network Development Director Mark Kordic said that Ingathering enables the network to meet operational expenses such as announcer salaries, broadcasting equipment costs, and programming fees. "Listeners expressed appreciation for the family-oriented programs available on The PATH?, and we are very grateful for their sacrificial involvement," stated Kordic. Concerning The Vision Fund, he added, "The extra level of support will help us offer a 24-hour lifeline of hope and love in areas where Christian broadcasting is not as available." The CDR Radio Network is seeking final FCC approval for new affiliate stations (repeater facilities) which would serve the Ohio cities of Sidney, Greenville, Bellefontaine, West Union, Hillsboro, and Logan. Kordic says that approximately 105,000 additional listeners would be served by the new radio stations. The PATH? 90.3 FM is the flagship station of The CDR Radio Network. The network also operates eight other Christian stations serving portions of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. CDR also broadcasts live Internet feed daily at -30-
