October is Membership Month! WCAT is Celebrating with Some Great Offers

Throughout the month of October, WestfordCAT is holding a membership drive. We’re asking for your support as we expand our coverage of WA sports games led by student interns, local news coverage and podcast production.

WestfordCAT is primarily funded by cable subscribers, through a franchise fee that is included on their monthly bill. As more cable subscribers have moved to video streaming services, franchise fee payments made to WestfordCAT are declining, as much as 5% each year.  Your donations make a difference!

While we’re facing uncertain times, technological changes and a shifting market, its supporters like you that express the value we hold in the community.
