Blugold Radio/Converge 99.9 FM

Support Converge Radio

As a student-run radio station not funded through university or state dollars, Converge relies on private support from donors like you to sustain our operation and continue creating expanded educational opportunities for UW-Eau Claire students as well as new paths of discovery for the university and its audience. The unique ownership and mission allow 99.9 FM to focus on providing access to regional musicians and programming in addition to hands-on, high-impact learning experiences in a professional setting.

UW-Eau Claire hits the airwaves

Born through an incredibly generous donation of transmitter and frequency from Midwest Family Broadcasting to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation, Blugold Radio partners with UW-Eau Claire, Blugold Athletics, along with other key media and music partnerships in a mission to ensure local visibility, access and support. When you donate to Blugold Radio, your gift will support:

  • Student-produced programming
  • High-impact learning experiences
  • Campus and community collaboration 
  • Professional and career skill development for students
  • Equipment, music licensing and engineer expenses

Why Blugold Radio?

“It’s inspiring to see students collaborating every day with area musicians, actors, and writers while doing industry standard production. We are lucky enough to produce something relevant to the communities in our 110-mile broadcast region.”
-Scott Morfitt, station manager
