What a week!  Together, we met the goal of $10,000!!! 

It wouldn't have been possible without you -- thank you for coming out to see us around Monroe, and for your efforts giving online and calling the station.

KEDM's "Be the One" Campaign was a success thanks to you, and we can celebrate and continue to bring you the programs you love on KEDM. Lagniappe, Morning Edition, All Things Considered and more have a home on KEDM because of you. 

Such a terrific campaign would not have been possible without the truly gracious location sponsors:
