As we prepare to celebrate Independence Day, it's worth keeping in mind the role that independent media plays in our democracy. An informed and engaged public is a critical part of our democratic infrastructure.
Public radio doesn’t just report the news, we bring people and communities together.
Through live events, call-in programs, social media and other efforts we enable people
to listen and exchange ideas. Through this work, we strengthen our democracy and help people of the Commonwealth find common ground.
As a NPR member station, WEKU shares a mission to create a more informed public and deepen understanding of events, ideas and cultures. Our unique local-national partnership keeps listeners informed about what's happening here in Kentucky, in our country and around the world. Whether through breaking news, an in-depth report or a podcast, the way public radio tells stories sets us apart. We report on events from the perspectives of people living through them and share voices that may otherwise go unheard.
When you sponsor WEKU, you invest your marketing dollars in creating a public square for Central and Eastern Kentucky. That investment pays off in numerous ways!
