Federal Funding For Public Broadcasting

For the first time in 5 years, federal funding for public broadcasting was included in a funding measure approved by the House Appropriations Committee and later confirmed in the Senate. This was only possible because listeners made their voices heard and expressed to policy-makers that their local public radio stations have a significant affect on their community and daily life. Please continue to tell your lawmakers that public media funding matters so that our station can continue to serve the community.
