It’s a great time to love local radio! 

 

Not everyone loves community media…

As we head into 2017 we are grateful for our listeners and contributors. Many of you may have heard about threats to cut funding for public media. KWMR receives about 25% of our funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). KWMR qualifies for this funding and receives money in the form of Community Service Grants. CPB takes into account the fact that we serve a sparsely populated rural community. There is real concern that this funding may be in jeopardy. We will keep you posted about what we learn from our community radio community via the National Federation of Community Broadcasters. Learn more HERE about protecting public media.
