For everyone who became a new member or renewed his/her membership during this past week's Radio Pledge Drive — let me send out my heartfelt thanks!

We commonly hear from viewers and listeners about how much one of our programs affected their lives. Whether it’s a notable television special or an intriguing report on AM 1370, your response to our efforts helps us gauge the effect of our programming.
