On Saturday, December 4th, 2021, our founder, engineer, and General Manager for seven years (2013-2020), Dennis Baldridge, passed away.
While we are saddened by the loss of our friend and founder, we celebrate his incredible accomplishments in service to the Lord during his time here and we rejoice in the knowledge that he has reached his eternal home with Jesus.
In lieu of flowers, the Baldridge family asks that memorial gifts be donated to WCNP radio.
Proceeds from the Baldridge Memorial Fund will be used to expand and improve the systems that allow WCNP to operate each and every day.
One of our most important projects is the addition of emergency power systems at each of our facilities. This equipment will allow WCNP to continue operating during emergencies and in times when the community most depends on a local media outlet. Below is an example of the different projects, their approximate cost, and some of the major components of each project.
