The Public Radio Society

88.5 WFDD has a long and distinguished history in the Piedmont Triad and High Country. In the fall of 2016, we celebrated our 70th birthday. We’re proud to be North Carolina’s longest continuously-broadcasting public radio station, and the state’s charter NPR member station. 

It takes contributions of all sizes for us to fulfill our mission. Our Public Radio Society members take the lead and provide an essential base of support, making certain that we can continue to serve our community.

Public Radio Society member benefits include:

  • VIP tour of the station
  • Name recognition in any Public Radio Society acknowledgements
  • Advanced invitation to WFDD events, and discounted tickets to WFDD events (as available)
  • Complimentary tickets to Piedmont and High Country events (as available)

Join the Public Radio Society with a gift of $1,000 or more.
