The local non-commercial radio station KLUX is hosting an on-the-air fundraiser. The event began Monday and continues Tuesday.

The goal is to raise about $13,000 in order to make up for a shortcoming earlier in the year. Station employees said they are right on track to meet the goal.

Donations from the public keep the radio station alive.

Donors aren't limited to our area. Online listeners worldwide have been contributing to the fund.
