Continue WMUB as we know it

I want to take this opportunity to express my strongest support for the continuation of WMUB as we know it at Miami and in Oxford as we know it.   With all due respect to the alternative public radio station in our area, WGUC, "MUB" provides a much more relevant line up in terms of local, state and national news coverage (not to mention a richer, more diverse offering of music).  Ours is one of those families that has all radios set to MUB and uses it as one of our top sources for news and information.  IT is probably our best source of information for both local and state news on a day to day basis.  It is common to hear information about Miami, Oxford, and state government first on MUB, and the information is often not even duplicated in our local newspaper, The Oxford Press, which as you know has only one edition per week. Also, NPR's coverage of national and international issues is simply outstanding.  While the headlines that it tends to cover may be duplicated in other media, the depth of news and information that it provides are unequaled.  I also enjoy very much the range of music and weekend programming, which exposes me to a broader range of music than I would otherwise have the time to follow. Our community would be diminished in many important ways should MUB cease to be a part of it. 

Please let supporters like me know what else we may do to help support the station's continuation.
