Anyone can show their support and become a member of KXCV/KRNW by going to the station's Web site at www.kxcv.org and clicking on the "Become a Member" button or the blinking "Fall Fund Drive" banner at the top right corner of the page. Contributions also may be submitted to KXCV/KRNW Public Radio, 800 University Dr., Wells Hall, Maryville, Mo. 64468 .
Membership opportunities start at $52, and other levels of giving and benefits are available to those who wish to support public radio programming in the KXCV/KRNW listening area. Supporting Memberships are $250 and Sustaining Memberships are $500. To recognize supporters who give $1,000 or more, the station is introducing the Millennium Club, which includes special premiums for listeners who contribute at these levels.
KXCV/KRNW General Manager Rodney Harris said the station is providing a "Passport to the Arts and Entertainment" membership card for gifts at any membership level. The card offers discounts to performances by the Nodaway Chorale, Saint Joseph Symphony, Robidoux Resident Theatre, St. Joseph Performing Arts Association and more.
Listener support helps ensure the future of the station's programming of local and national news, music, arts, entertainment and Bearcat athletics, as well as national broadcasts such as "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered," "Prairie Home Companion," "Car Talk" and "Fresh Air."
Located at 90.5 (KXCV in Maryville) and 88.9 (repeater station KRNW in Chillicothe) on the FM dial, the station provides streaming audio worldwide via its Web site and to iPhone and iPod Touch users who install the free Public Radio Tuner application on their hand-held devices.
