WGBH Tops Mark Of Rebuilding Fund

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

WGBH president Ralph Lowell has announced that the educational station's disaster fund goal of $1.7 million has been exceeded by nearly $12,000. An early morning fire destroyed WHBH's Cambridge studios last Octover.

Lowell stated that the rebuilding fund had closed exactly on schedule, one year from the date of the fire.

Major single contributions came from the Ford Foundation, which matched $500,000 worth of local contributions, and from Boston's Twentieth Century Fund, which gave $125,000.

WGBH has been using the city's three commercial stations and the Catholic Television Center for its broadcasting. Its affiliated radio station WGBH-FM returned to its studios in Symphony Hall, where it had begun broadcasting ten years before the fire destroyed its Cambridge Headquarters.
