Take advantage of the Early Bird Special

Oct 14, 2016

The Early Bird Special has flown to the KUT studios again for the Fall Membership drive! You need to take advantage of the opportunity soon though! The special ends at midnight on Oct. 18. 

For this drive, you can get a KUT T-shirt and KUT mug for $10 per month. If you request those gifts separately, we'd ask for $12.50 per month. 

The KUT T-shirt is red and features Austin's NPR Station on the front. The mug is white and prominently displays the new logo.

KUT Membership Drive

Thanks to the early support of our listeners - we were able to cut one full day off our Spring Membership Drive.  That means TOMORROW is the last day you have to show your support! We still need your help to make this fundraiser a success - so please make your sustaining or one time gift TODAY to make it count!

We are making our appeal based on the facts below.

The tote bag we keep talking about

Apr 11, 2015

On Saturday and Sunday only, we are offering the "Tote bag that they keep talking about on public radio." The tote bag is a sturdy, white bag but the wry words on the front are what make it unique.

The tote bag is unique much like the weekend programming on KUT. From "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me!" to "Selected Shorts" the programming on the weekends is unlike anything you can find elsewhere on the dial.

We've heard from many of you during the Spring Membership Drive that KUT 90.5 is a daily destination - an escape from the regular grind. Whether it's a respite from traffic on Mopac or a break from work, KUT Austin's NPR station provides you with something else to think about - 24/7!

In fact, a listener from Austin says, "Your radio turns my time stuck in an Austin traffic jam into a unique experience."

The Spring 2015 Membership Drive starts today! At KUT we enjoy Membership Drives because we get to learn what you like about the station.

We had a great buy-back campaign! And, as a result of listeners we are going to end the drive a day early! Thanks so much!

However, our work is not done. We still need to hear from those who have not given. Only through listener support are we able to bring you stories from Joy Diaz, national reports from Steve Inskeep and great This American Life stories by Ira Glass.

End the Membership Drive Early

Mar 26, 2015

At KUT, our goal is to give you MORE programming and less on-air fundraising. Our Spring Membership drive is scheduled to begin on April 7 and end on April 15.

We’re asking you to take a day off the drive by pledging early. Our goal is to raise $125,000 before the drive starts - and when we do – we’ll end the drive one day early on April 14!
