Hello, I’m [NAME], [TITLE], at [LICENSEE].  [LICENSEE] has always been a major supporter of [STATION] Radio. However, I don’t think it’s a secret that the university’s allocation from the state has been dramatically reduced, and campus departments such as [STATION] must do more to address the fiscal realities of the situation. We’re proud that the station has nearly [NUMBER of LISTENERS] each week who benefit from this [GENRE, GENRE and GENRE] service of [LICENSEE]. But, for the station to continue to exist without a change in service, it is important that those who listen to [STATION] contribute. If you enjoy the programs you hear on [STATION], it’s extremely important that you do your part to help [LICENSEE] and others to support the station. You can help with your phone call to [PHONE NUMBER] or pledge online at [URL]. Thank you.
