As reported yesterday, tThe UNIVERSITY OF EVANSVILLE has turned down an offer from a potential buyer for its noncommercial WUEV/EVANSVILLE after students and communty members mobilized to fight a potential sale.
UE President STEPHEN JENNINGS told the EVANSVILLE COURIER PRESS that he was "pleased to see the level of interest in WUEV expressed by students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and the general community" but will be looking to have them show that support by donating to the station, which officials say spends ten times its $15,000. annual revenues in expenses. JENNINGS added that a "Friends of WUEV" fundraising operation will be formed.
