When WYSU-FM (88.5) launches its fall pledge drive on Friday, it’s looking for more than a supplement to its annual $900,000 budget, reports the Youngstown Vindicator.

The classical music pubcaster, based at Youngstown State University, needs to raise money for its conversion to digital, “high-definition” broadcasting, and the station will be offering HD-equipped radios as prizes for some lucky donors.

“WYSU recently announced that it will gradually be moving to an all-news format on its primary channel at 88.5 FM,” says the Vindy, but the changeover won’t take effect until 2011, and when it happens, classical music will be programmed on one of the station’s digital streams.

Never mind the free radios, though. One lucky donor will also win an all-expenses paid trip for two to Greece.
