Salisbury University Offers Plans To Keep Delmarva Public Radio In Operation

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Big news for Delmarva Public Radio after Salisbury University announces plans to keep them in operation.

SU's President wasn't there for the announcement, due to illness, but it was her proposal that the foundation transfer their license. That would give the university responsibility of the management operations for the two stations, WSCL and WSDL. If approved, the university would rebuild a location for the station and tear down its current location in Caruthers Hall.

"In working with the Foundation of the Delmarva Public Radio, we ask them to continue their support, to support with fundraising to the amount of $250,000 a year," said Diane Allen, Provost of Salisbury University.

"They're looking for the community to step up. They are the ones that want this, we do too obviously, but it's a partnership," said Richard Holloway, from the University Foundation Board.

If approved, University officials say they will assess the stations progress in three years. Based on the amount of listeners and financial support, they'll decide whether to continue with operations.
