Donor Spotlight Martin and Ina Taylor, residents of Toronto, ON, have been giving to WNED | WBFO for well over three decades. They tune in to WNED-TV for a number of programs such as news and science programs as well as historical documentaries. Ina also enjoys "A Place to Call Home" and "Downton Abbey" while Martin is partial to complex detective stories, most recently "Dickensian." No matter the program, they almost always watch together. Martin is originally from England but grew up in Scotland and later Canada, while Ina was born in Seoul, South Korea. The two met in 1958 while attending graduate school at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. They were married in 1961 and have lived in the Toronto area ever since, supporting WNED | WBFO and other philanthropic organizations throughout the region. The Taylors choose to give to WNED | WBFO because they know they can rely on the station's worthwhile programming. Ina appreciates the educational programs found on WNED-TV that are free of commercials. Martin values Classical 94.5 WNED, observing that the style of music is "classical" because it has been enjoyed for hundreds of years, unlike the of-the-moment music found on many commercial stations. Both Ina and Martin are committed to keeping this quality programming alive for years to come. Thank you Martin and Ina for your loyal support of WNED | WBFO!
