The Board of Directors of NPR announced in mid-August that it has been informed by President and Chief Executive Officer Gary E.

Knell will remain with NPR until then to work with the Board to ensure a smooth transition as it launches a search for his successor.

As we move forward in this action packed year at KRCU we are quickly approaching our KRCU Fall Pledge Drive.  The drive will begin on October 2 at 7:00 a.m. and will end on October 9 at 6:00 p.m.  Our goal for the Fall Pledge Drive this year is $45,000.  Our listeners strengthen our ability to provide quality news, music, and programming to Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and the Parkland.

KRCU's 6th Annual "Concert in a Cave" was held on Friday, August 30 at Cave Vineyard in Ste. Genevieve, MO. Over 100 people attended the event and heard from folk singers Cathy Barton and Dave Para. Cathy and Dave performed a variety of tunes including songs that featured the autoharp, banjo and jaw harp.

The 4th Annual KRCU Breakfast was a huge success with about 90 individuals in attendance.  The event helped KRCU kick off its Spring Pledge Drive with over $4,000 in donations.  NPR Science Correspondent Joe Palca wowed our supporters with stories about overnight stays at the South Pole and flying into the center of a hurricane.  Joe also took time to visit with students and faculty at Southeast Missouri State University before traveling back to Washington D.C.
