Iowa's KBBG sets $200,000 goal for endowment

KBBG, the largest African-American owned and operated noncom radio station in Iowa, has set a goal of $200,000 to establish an endowment, reports the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier. The station hopes to reach that figure within three years. "Given what we're facing-- whether it's the economic turndown, or even closer to home with the surge in crime and incidents and invasions -- the station is probably more important to the community it serves at this point in history than perhaps at any other time," said KBBG President Louise Porter. "And the best way to secure the future of the radio station is to establish an endowment fund." This past weekend (Aug. 21) was the station's 33rd annual "Radio-Thon and Parade" in Waterloo.
