Vidare will also work with the station to implement their “Fundraising 365” strategy, helping connect programming and fundraising to help PLR tell their story to their listeners throughout the year.
PLR GM Chris Gilbreath says, ““The timing couldn’t have been better. Just as I joined Positive Life Radio as General Manager, the opportunity came to work with my fundraising dream team of Bill, Dave and Paul. They bring a wealth of wisdom and experience to the table at a time when we’re looking to reach new heights of fundraising excellence. So long as I remember to log off my personal Facebook account when they’re in the building, what could go wrong?!?”
