WMOT Membership FAQs

screen_shot_2021-02-12_at_1.58.51_pm.png

WMOT is funded primarily by individuals who donate and become members. Additional funding comes from business support (underwriting and digital ads on WMOT.org), salary support from Middle Tennessee State University, donations of unwanted vehicles and donations to our Amplifier program (businesses, legacy gifts and individuals). 

60 percent of WMOT’s current budget comes from individual donations.

Membership

Members make WMOT possible with their financial support. WMOT is a non-profit and relies on listener contributions to pay for programming costs, streaming expenses, knowledgeable hosts, exclusive interviews and video content.
