Thank You for 2020 — Here’s to 2021

In an era where we're being bombarded every day on our telephones by scams and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by hoaxes and propaganda, access to information is more important than ever.

This year was a very difficult one for everyone. At Tube City Community Media, we lost one of our best correspondents due to a family emergency, while another had to give up writing for us because of her daytime work obligations. That left us unable to cover some communities with the depth they deserve, and we're sorry about that.

But we've persisted and we are working to recruit several new writers — two of them have already had bylines recently and we're looking forward to more of their good work.

Fifth Anniversary WMCK.FM and Goffus Golden Oldies

Back on October 6, 2015, this producer/host was proud and honored to officially sign on WMCK.FM McKeesport’s very own Internet Radio Station.  As we celebrate our fifth anniversary, let’s return to October 6, 2015 and remember the very first program in the series of Goffus Golden Oldies Tuesday October 6, 2020 at 6:00 am with Encore presentations Thursday October 8 at 7:00 pm and Saturday October 10 at 3:00 pm. During the past five years, it has been my pleasure to present these programs for you.  My wish is that all of you continue to listen to the truly wonderful assorted programs on WMCK.FM, including Goffus Golden Oldies with your host/producer Doug Goffus.  Again, Thank You for listening.

Year-end fund drive: Here's to 2020!

This is a time of year when people give thanks --- and on behalf of our board, volunteers and contributors, I want to thank each of you.

Several months ago, Tube City Community Media's websites hit a milestone I never thought we'd reach --- we had 10 million hits in a single calendar year. It's undoubtedly higher now.

If you use any of our websites --- Tube City Almanac, the obituaries or WMCK Internet Radio ---  we do need your financial support.

We try not to ask for money all the time --- and we run only two fund drives, one in the summer and this one at the end of the year.

Tube City Community Media Inc. is an IRS 501(c)(3) charity and is eligible for tax-deductible donations.

If you are financially able, and would like to make a gift, please consider doing so.

Donations may be made by check or money order to:

Tube City Community Media Inc.
P.O. Box 94
McKeesport PA 15134

Or via PayPal at: http://www.tubecityonline.com/contact/

We are grateful to the G.C. Murphy Co. Foundation and the E.R. Crawford Estate Trust Fund for their grants that have provided us with a stable base of operations for the past few years.

We are hoping we can grow again in 2020, and we look forward to continuing to provide you, and McKeesport-area residents, with this service.

Best wishes for a safe holiday and successful new year!

Jason Togyer
Executive Director and Board Member
Tube City Community Media Inc.
