A Message From the President

What an exciting summer this has been!

First, the Antiques Roadshow stopped in Indy last month to tape Hoosiers and their treasures for episodes to air 2017. In August, WFYI hosts our first-ever Red Carpet Premiere with Heartland Film for a stellar WFYI/Ted Green documentary on the history and legacy of Crispus Attucks High School. Then in September we kick off autumn with the broadcast premiere of Attucks: The School that Opened a City, along with American Graduate Day, a full day of inspiring, education-focused programming.

WFYI is also beginning the “public phase” of our $8.5 million Amplify the Voices Capital Campaign. With only $2.5 million left to raise – crucial dollars that will update our technology and facilities to grow WFYI’s audience and story-telling capacity -- we will be asking you, in the weeks ahead, to consider making an extra gift to keep WFYI healthy and nimble for generations to come. We hope you’ll join the many who’ve already contributed.

Both on TV and Radio these two months, WFYI inspires and informs with a jam-packed schedule of entertaining new seasons of your favorite programs, informative and in-depth election coverage, plus a week-long education focus that culminates in American Graduate Day, a national broadcast exploring the many ways to help students stay in school and achieve graduation.

There is something for everyone these two months! Thank you for your help in keeping WFYI strong and vibrant as a public media leader throughout central Indiana. We simply could not do any of our work in the community without you.

Thank you!

Lloyd Wright
WFYI President and CEO
