“As past board chair, I was able to witness firsthand how responsibly and strategically membership dollars were used. That is why I renew my membership(s) each year at the President’s Council level.”

–Bill Gisel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Rich Products

Ed Gleason, member since 1984

“The only reason I own a radio is because of Classical 94.5 WNED and WBFO-FM 88.7.”

–Ed Gleason, member since 1984

Marion Fay, member since 1999

“Without classical music and good drama available on WNED | WBFO, there would be a large void in my life. Arts provide a balance to everyday cares and concerns.”

–Marion Fay, member since 1999
