Why does your organization support WFYI?
WFYI helps listeners and viewers understand the world in which we all live. WFYI avoids click bate and instead provides long form, quality journalism about local and national issues. Some of us love the TV documentaries about famous Hoosiers. Some of us enjoy the various radio programs like Fresh Air and 1A.
Others appreciate the local long-form programming such as Indiana Week in Review. And we also value the fantastic arts and cultural content.
Which is your favorite WFYI program, and why?
Indiana Week in Review. I began listening to Indiana Week in Review shortly after I moved to Indianapolis in 2005. The show provided a great format to quickly learn about state and local issues because it provides comprehensive discussion about important issues from panelists with different views. I still appreciate hearing differing perspectives about current issues each week.
