Good news for Peconic Public Broadcasting, new owners of WLIU in Southampton, N.Y.: Listeners contributed a record total of more than $90,000 during its on-air fund drive Nov. 19-22. Nearly 700 supporters pledged almost three times the highest amount raised when the station was under Long Island University, according to Hamptons.com. “From Saturday afternoon, when we had received more than $50,000, we knew this was going to be a different fund drive,” said General Manager Wally Smith.
