Evansville's PBS affiliate, WNIN, is preparing for the station's biggest annual fundraiser.

The WNIN auction is usually held in the Spring, but the pandemic pushed back the event and changed up its format this year. The current health crisis forcing WNIN to change the auction's format to completely online.

WNIN Vice President of Development, Tim Black, joining 44News This Morning on Wednesday to discuss all the changes.

Typically, the auction airs LIVE over the course of a week showcasing items for bidders to call in on but not this year. Volunteers will not be answering any phones and the on-air portion of the auction is also being shortened.

Bidding will be done completely online. If you want to bid this year, you'll need to register at the auction website and you can already do so.

While we won't hear the ringing of phones this year, bidding will be as easy as picking up your smartphone or logging on to your computer from home.
