A Message From the President

We spend a lot of time telling you how much we appreciate your support and how we couldn’t continue to provide the educational and entertaining programming we do without it – and it’s true. What we don’t often tell you is that your support also allows us to reach more and more people.

The research is clear – Americans want trusted, unbiased reporting and storytelling. And not coincidentally, our radio audience is larger than it’s ever been. Your contributions help us provide an award-winning local news team and the global reporting of NPR that stands out from rest, so again, thank you for your support of public media and WFYI.

Speaking of our local news team, we are very pleased to be welcoming Scott Cameron to the WFYI News family. He just started as IPB News managing editor, which means he leads the statewide news collaborative that operates out of WFYI. We’re pleased to have him on board and look forward to his experience as a public media veteran in shaping our coverage from around the state.

We’re also looking forward to next month’s installment of our popular Listen Up speaker series. Sarah Koenig, the host of the podcast “Serial,” is going to be at Clowes Hall on June 10 and we are expecting a large crowd. If you haven’t ordered your tickets yet, you may want to do that soon.

Finally, May means a lot of activities in Indianapolis. Of course, there’s that little racing event on the west side of town, but don’t forget to include the National Memorial Day Concert in your holiday weekend plans. This is the 30th anniversary of this patriotic musical broadcast, so please join us at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 26 on WFYI 1.

Enjoy your entire month of May. We appreciate you!

Sincerely,

Lloyd Wright
WFYI President and CEO
