Additionally, it operates a cable and internet television channel which it has named WUWF-TV.WUWF was founded in 1981 by the late Dr. Thomas K. Perry, and has served the Pensacola and NW Florida communities. Working with a core staff of multi-talented professionals and hundreds of volunteers, WUWF has been responsible for an arts resurgence in the area.[citation needed] The station is responsible in large part[citation needed] for the success of the Pensacola Jazz Fest, the Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival, renovations of the historic Saenger Theater, the Pensacola Museum of Art, and the Pensacola Cultural Center.With the cutback of federal funding in the 1990s, WUWF began a course as a listener supported station. Today, it enjoys a multi-million dollar endowment and operates largely with contributions from local individual listeners with additional support from locally based businesses. Only a small portion of the station's operating budget comes from state and federal grants. The University of West Florida also provides funds, mainly for facilities upkeep and utility bills.
