For every $1 of federal funding, public broadcasting stations raise more than $6 from local sources — a tremendous return and a successful public-private partnership. Still, the new administration is proposing to eliminate this funding and leave millions of Americans without what they believe is the most trusted source of news, information and early education in the country.
A 500 Tradition revamped. This year, the famous "Last Row Party" returns after a year on hiatus, bigger and better than ever. Our guests will be former Last Row Driver Lyn St. James, Scott Goodyear, and Steve Chassey, as well as Linda Jackson, Vice President of Development for the Indianapolis Press Club Foundation. Not only is the Last Row Party a fun roast of the final three race qualifiers, it also serves as a Press Club scholarship fundraiser.
