I contributed $100 to WBUR today. WBUR is on constantly in our house. There is a prominent “Support WBUR” link at the top of the homepage, marked by a button in a contrasting color. The transaction went off quickly and easily, and I received email confirmation of my pledge shortly afterward.
I tried to contribute to WGBH today. Our toddler watches a fair amount of Sesame Street and Teletubbies. I had to scan around the page a while before finding the “Pledge & Renew” link down in the fifth row of the left-hand navigation bar. I filled out the form and hit the “Submit” button. Then the server dropped my connection.
