Western Michigan University's new fundraising chief Tim Terrentine made his pledge to WMUK this morning in a live interview with General Manager Stephen Williams, and urged listeners to donate to the fall fund drive, too.

"I think public radio is one of those places that remains in America where you can have an elevated dialogue about issues," said Terrentine, WMU vice president for development and alumni relations. "The ability to have dialogue and banter about a topic in a respectful, thoughtful way, unfortunately, is not the norm in our media anymore."

Garrard Macleod’s career at WMUK predates those call letters. He began working at WMCR as a student in the 1950’s. He joined the staff full time as a classical music announcer in 1959.
