The Michigan Association of Public Broadcasters (MAPB) is pleased to announce the 2016 Public Media Impact Award Donor Recipient, Ms. Bucky Love. Bucky Love has a heart for, and has given from the heart, to WGVU Public Media for over 30 years – her nonprofit of choice when it comes to a champion for the arts and music. Her passion for WGVU extends first and foremost to the music the station is synonymous with, and which she helps to nourish with the Bucky M Love WGVU Music Endowment Fund. In addition, Bucky gives generously to WGVU on a heartfelt basis to help fund a variety of educational initiatives and has provided more than one lead gift to WGVU to acquire much needed production equipment.
Bucky’s love of music and sense of responsibility to give back to the community both started at a very early age influenced by her father Michael, who enjoyed singing in his native Slovenian language.
The MAPB Public Media Impact Award will be presented at the MAB/MAPB Awards Banquet, Tuesday, August 30, 2016 at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth. For more information or to register, click here.
