It is impressive that WUNC was able to reach the goal that it apparently set for itself - 800,000 early! This morning they said 4,900 had contributed. (Updated on 3 May to "more than 6,000.) That is still such a startling small number.

They keep saying that they get no money from the State as in an on-air plug on 1 May. Literally, that is true, but who pays for their facility in Chapel Hill? See their annual reports. Who manages their back office? It's disingenuous to say what they are saying. When I checked a while ago, I think it amounted to something like 250,000/year but that needs to be verified.
