KCLU Receives Million Dollar Gift For Endowment To Enhance News Coverage

KCLU usually brings you the news from the Central and South Coasts, but today it’s in the news.

The non-profit station has received a million dollar gift from a Westlake Village couple to support and enhance its news coverage by establishing a news endowment.

The gift is the latest by Linda and Dennis Fenton to support the station. They’ve been station members since it first went on the air in 1994, and Linda Fenton is currently a member of the station’s advisory board. The Fentons have been active in the philanthropic community for decades.

KCLU has received more than 200 broadcast journalism awards in the past two decades, with its news efforts made possible by listener support.

California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks is the parent of KCLU Radio, which created the station as a community service for the Central and South Coasts.

People wishing to make a donation to this endowment (in any amount) can contact Mary Olson, KCLU General Manager, at (805) 493-3925 or
