A Message From the President

As we wrap up another successful year together, we would like to take a minute to thank you for the many ways you have welcomed WFYI Public Media into your lives. Whether you have connected with us through television or radio, online, or at our many community gatherings and events, we hope your life has been enriched by the many ways WFYI works to keep you inspired, informed and entertained.

November finished strong with another Spirited Chase event, and we want to thank all of the partners and guests who helped to make this event possible. It was truly a community effort, and each of our partners helped us understand and celebrate the many ways we experience the concept of home.

Our Fall Membership Drive continues through the 11th, with plenty of special programming lined up. On the first of the month, we’re airing Texas Tenors: You Should Dream, and offer the chance to meet the group when they bring their unique blend of country and classical music to Indianapolis next year.

December highlights also include the premiere of Great Performances: The Hollow Crown – Richard III, a three-part mini-series adaptation of the classic William Shakespeare play, and the continuation of the Fall Arts Festival.

All month long, you can catch holiday specials on WFYI Public Television and WFYI Public Radio. Additionally, WFYI staff will be reading holiday themed children’s stories throughout the month as part of the Indianapolis Public Library’s “Call-A-Story” program. Also this month, we offer you the opportunity to relive the excitement of the popular British drama Downton Abbey with a marathon that starts on Thursday, January 29.

Finally, in this season of giving, we at WFYI thank YOU for all the ways you give of your time and treasure to support public media in central Indiana. We are glad you have joined us. Members tell us that WFYI is “trustworthy and reliable,” “inspiring and invaluable,” and “meaningful every day.” Thank you! Your support makes a powerful impact in the lives of those we serve.

On behalf of everyone associated with WFYI Public Media we wish you the very best this Holiday Season!

Lloyd Wright
WFYI President and CEO
