Brendan McLaughlin is helping WMNF Meet the Match! 

Renowned local broadcast journalist and WMNF volunteer Brendan McLaughlin has joined forces with WMNF to help lead our “Meet the Match” Endowment Fund campaign! 

A longtime television news anchor in Tampa Bay, McLaughlin is passionate about his hometown community radio station, and the independent news and public interest programming found only on WMNF. He even took time out from a family vacation in San Francisco to record and send us this video! 

Please join Brendan in investing in the future of this invaluable community resource by making your contribution to WMNF’s Meet the Match campaign today!

A limited-time opportunity for a stronger WMNF 

To meet our goal to receive a generous matching grant from Community Foundation Tampa Bay, WMNF and its supporters must raise $200,000 by July 5, 2023. 

Once we do, Community Foundation Tampa Bay and the WMNF Board of Directors will each contribute $100,000 in matching gifts to finally establish a new WMNF Endowment Fund.

The funds invested in the endowment will then grow to help secure the station’s long-term financial health and expand our service to the community. This is our chance to leave a legacy of music discovery and independent news for the generations to come!
