Dear Friend of WKSU, When WKSU first went on the air in 1950, station founder Walton D. Clarke could not have envisioned the depth and breadth of our programming sixty years later. From our early days as Kent State University’s ten-watt, student-operated radio station broadcasting just 25 hours a week, WKSU is now Ohio’s largest FM radio signal. We continue to discover and refine ways of connecting with listeners. From a leadership perspective, Clarke as well as John Weiser (who led the station from 1962 to 1971) would be proud of the prominence that WKSU holds in the public media arena today. Much of our outstanding national reputation can be credited to our third general manager, John Perry, who embraced new technologies with enthusiasm; linked WKSU with NPR when that organization was formed in 1974; and broadened our signal reach by adding repeater stations in New Philadelphia, Thompson, and Wooster. Since beginning my tenure as WKSU’s general manager in 2001, we have added a repeater station in Norwalk and translators in Ashland and Boardman; successfully completed a fundraising campaign to establish the WKSU Endowment Fund; and launched Folk Alley.com, the worldwide leader for folk music content online. These days, WKSU is as much a content provider as a radio station. Thanks to technology, listeners access our programs in ways that are unconstrained by place or time. As we look forward, technological improvements will continue to change the way we do business. To ensure that we remain the best pos- sible public media outlet for listeners, WKSU’s Sound of the Future Capital Campaign—the largest-ever fundraising campaign in our history—is fully moving our station into the digital age. Thank you for supporting WKSU. Listeners and contributing members are the backbone of the station, and we are grateful to you. Sincerely, Mission Statement WKSU creates a shared civic and cultural life that connects communities through a diverse mix of media and that extends the heritage of Kent State University. Al Bartholet Vision Statement Executive Director and General Manager WKSU is committed to building relationships with communities of listeners whose lives are P.S. I hope you enjoy reading the following enriched with news, information and cultural 60th anniversary highlights and welcome offerings that utilize appropriate media platforms. your feedback at email@example.com. WKSU will leverage its strengths as Ohio’s lead- ing public radio station by providing distinctive regional coverage that has national appeal and that capitalizes on WKSU’s increasingly valued role as a media institution for the region. Fiscal Year 2009-2010 In Review 3 HD/DIGITAL CONVERSION Approximately 180,000 individuals listen to WKSU every week. This year, we expanded listening platforms beyond the station’s terrestrial signal, our online stream, and our HD channels. Now—in addition to HD-1 (our regular on-air schedule), HD-2 (Folk Alley), and HD-3 (all classical music)—we added HD-4. HD-4 is devoted to news and information program- ming from WKSU, NPR, the BBC, and other public radio sources. The schedule includes programs that are unavailable on the radio in our regional market, such as The Takeaway, On Point, Here and Now, The Story, and To the Point. WKSU is the first public radio station and only the second radio station in the U.S.— public WKSU COMMUNITY ADVISORY or commercial—to adopt the new technology that allows COUNCIL MEMBER RICHIK SARKAR WITH four content streams to be aired simultaneously.

Fiscal Year 2009-2010 In Review 5 FUND DRIVES AND PARTNERSHIPS Approximately 75% of WKSU’s operating budget comes from the community with an additional 10% of direct support coming from Kent State University. Other fund- ing sources for WKSU include the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and eTech Ohio. Of WKSU’s 10,000 contribut- ing members, 13% have been supporting the station for 20 years or more. Thanks to overwhelming response, our fall fund and spring fund drives were successful and nearly 4,500 listeners pledged during the drives. In December during the station’s annual Hunger Challenge Fund Drive, WKSU received 1,130 pledges that brought in $182,810.63. It was a record-breaker for this Challenge, which matches membership pledges with corporate and individual gifts to the Akron-Canton Re- gional Foodbank, the Cleveland Foodbank, and Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio.
