Thanks to the generosity of supporters near and far, KUCB's 2019 Pledge Drive broke all of the station's previous fundraising records.  

The fall membership event raised more than $43,000 at a time when the station needs local support more than ever, due to the elimination of state funding. In addition to the community's tremendous contributions, the Oct. 4 fundraiser was also memorable for a lengthy and unexpected power outage, which interrupted the on-air drive for about four hours.

To mark that anniversary, KUCB is spending every Thursday of 2019 looking back at our former reporters and sharing some of their stories.

In October, we focused on Greta Mart, who worked in the newsroom in 2015 and 2016.

She spoke with KUCB's Laura Kraegel about her experience, which started when General Manager Lauren Adams tapped her for a temporary gig.

Last month, Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed $2.7 million in state funding for public broadcasting.
