A Message From the President

Just as our region’s arts organizations are launching their new seasons, we too, kick off the PBS Fall Arts Festival this month. Beginning on October 14 with the Grammy Salute to Music Legends, you’ll want to make Fridays your “arts night” through November. Learn more about these programs, including the making of Broadway’s hit musical, Hamilton, in the program, Hamilton’s America.

WFYI’s signature arts radio program for the past 16 years, The Art of the Matter, debuts this month on 90.1 with a new, magazine-style format. Along with familiar host, Sharon Gamble, you’ll also hear more voices from our staff, exploring a wider breadth of genres and perspectives that represent the full vibrancy of Indy’s arts scene.

Also this month, our Conversations about Education series returns with two important discussions. One features discussions with candidates for IPS school board to help inform your vote, while the other explores the problems and solutions of absentee fathers on students’ educations.

Thank you to all who joined WFYI in the past few months during our TV drive, and this month, during our Radio drive. You make a powerful impact on all that we do to provide central Indiana residents with quality, educational programs and services all day, every day. We are grateful for your commitment and dedication to public media.

Thank you!

Lloyd Wright
WFYI President and CEO
