A Message From the President

Happy new year! The new year brings new possibilities, and I’m excited about what’s in store for 2021. As we move into 2021, I would like you to know that WFYI will always be here for you every step of the way, just as we have been for the past five decades.

I hope you’ve secured your virtual ticket for this month’s Listen Up with Terry Gross, presented by Lumina Foundation and Plews Shadley Racher & Braun. If not, there’s still time! Be sure to reserve your virtual seat for January 13th at wfyi.org/events. You won’t want to miss this one!

Beginning New Year’s Day, you can tune in for a marathon of self-care shows to kick off the year. That evening, “Great Performances” rings in the new year with the Vienna Philharmonic.
All new seasons of “Antiques Roadshow” and “Finding Your Roots” head your way this month, as well. To celebrate, we’re airing full-day bingeworthy picks from each series on Saturday, January 2 and Sunday, January 3.

Look for several local productions premiering this month, including an hour-long special virtual performance of Indy Jazz Fest that features more than two dozen local top jazz artists.

If you’re a fan of MASTERPIECE, I have fantastic news: four highly anticipated new shows debut this month! Beginning January 3 with the mystery “Elizabeth is Missing,” followed by the seven-part “All Creatures Great and Small” on January 10, drama fans have a lot to look forward to.
I wish you all the best for the coming year, and would like to thank you for inviting WFYI into your life and allowing us to always be here for you. We promise to continue to provide trusted information and inspiring stories in the months ahead.
