JPR Pulls Ahead in Rusty Hubcap Race

The 1964 F100 - JPR's Rusty Hubcap Leader

Grammys.... Oscars... Rusty Hubcaps

Sure, Sam Smith is talented. But he still hasn't won the most coveted award out there: The Rusty Hubcap!

Every year, The Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program presents awards to distinguished public radio stations across the nation to recognize the special achievements of public radio listeners supporting their local station by donating a vehicle. Jefferson Public Radio is currently in the lead for 2015 in a very special category: Oldest Donated Vehicle!

JPR pulled ahead this month when one of our listeners donated a 1964 Ford F100 Pickup, breaking a tie we held with North Carolina station WFAE, both stations having already received donations of model-year 1965 vehicles earlier in 2015.

Jefferson Public Radio would like to recognize our stars-- the (until now) unheralded folks who are driving vehicle donations to their stations and raising lots of money for the programming we all love!
