IMPACT REPORT

A Note From LPM’s President

Dear Friends,

Louisville is a dynamic city with a proud history and a bright future. Its public media organization both reflects that and challenges it. At Louisville Public Media, we inform, inspire and empower through independent news, music, education and experiences that reflect our diverse community.

A strong, free press is vital to a functioning democracy. In an increasingly complex world, where facts are dismissed and trust is at a deficit, the press must challenge, agitate and examine the leaders and issues that will define our future. It must also reflect and include its place — its music, art and people. It must represent, include and engage the creators and creations of its community.

These are urgent needs in our city, and Louisville Public Media will continue growing to meet them — thanks to your support.

The past year has been exciting, and I hope you enjoy reading the highlights listed below. I also hope you remember your important role in making them possible.

Stephen George, President, Louisville Public Media

Louisville Public Media WFPL

89.3 WFPL News Louisville is an independent, nonpartisan daily news outlet that reports on our city, state and region without fear or favor. We do fact-based reporting that is free from political and corporate influence. We are Louisville’s NPR affiliate that produces and distributes daily journalism via broadcast, digital audio and online.

Louisville Public Media WUOL

90.5 WUOL Classical Louisville gives life to our city’s cultural community. With 24/7 classical music and fine arts features, interviews and event listings, we offer a unique local connection. We champion area artists and cultural institutions, and we offer an escape from our raucous world with music that feeds the soul and expertise that illuminates the art.

Louisville Public Media WFPK

91.9 WFPK Independent Louisville is our region’s award-winning hub for independent, alternative music and American gems like jazz and bluegrass. We introduce you to significant new music, connect you to Louisville’s best and play your long-time favorites for an eclectic mix. And we bring our community together with regular concerts and events, such as WFPK Waterfront Wednesday.

Louisville Public Media KyCIR

The Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting is a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom that produces investigative journalism that affects you, your neighborhood, and your Commonwealth. Our mission is to protect society’s most vulnerable citizens, expose wrongdoing in the public and private sectors, increase transparency in government and hold leaders accountable.

Louisville Public Media Ohio Valley ReSource

The Ohio Valley ReSource is a regional journalism collaborative reporting on economic and social change in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. With support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, seven public media outlets across the three states partner to form the ReSource in order to strengthen news coverage of the area’s most important issues, including the economy, energy, environment, food, health and infrastructure.

Louisville Public Media Do502

Do502 is Louisville’s go-to calendar service. We provide event listings for more than 150 venues and organizations across the metro area. We also serve as the how-to manual for experiencing the city. Want to do Derby or Forecastle right? Want to know what bars allow dogs, where you can get a taco, or which brunch spots are family-friendly? Our lists have you covered.

OUR IMPACT

“Louisville has the greatest public radio of any place I have lived. I appreciate hearing local, national, and global news as well as the community involvement and investment from LPM… Public radio is a gem and needs to be supported!”

~ Tabitha Mead

WFPL’s In Conversation

WFPL’s In Conversation

89.3 WFPL launched In Conversation with Rick Howlett, a weekly, live talk show on Fridays at 11 a.m. The hour-long show features expert guests and gives everyone a chance to join the conversation by phone or social media. In the first year, topics included the Castleman statue debate, pro sports in Louisville, medical marijuana, and Kentucky’s pension predicament. In Conversation airs again at 8 p.m. on Fridays and is also available as a podcast.

Fatal Flaws

Fatal Flaws

KyCIR reporter Eleanor Klibanoff and Ohio Valley ReSource editor Jeff Young spent nearly six months working on our “Fatal Flaws” investigation, in collaboration with the Center for Public Integrity. Our reporting found that Kentucky’s worker safety program failed to properly investigate nearly every on-the-job death for two years. After the story was released, the Kentucky Labor Cabinet announced reforms related to occupational safety and health compliance.

Louisville Public Media Election Coverage

Election Coverage

89.3 WFPL stayed busy with the 2018 general election in November and the primary election in May. We hosted live, televised mayoral and congressional debates in our performance studio in the fall. Our comprehensive 2018 Voter Guide was the most read story on wfpl.org of the year. Jeremy Hobson of the NPR show Here and Now traveled to Louisville to host the nationally broadcast show live from our studios on Kentucky’s primary election day. He also joined a group of donors in our performance studio for a discussion that evening as live election results came in.

Experimenting with Virtual Reality

Experimenting with Virtual Reality

Louisville Public Media experimented with two virtual reality projects this year. On 89.3 WFPL, a grant from Journalism 360 and the Online News Association enabled us to dive deep into youth homelessness. We filmed two interactive VR videos on the issue and hosted an event in our studios for people to view them. On 91.9 WFPK, we broadcast two performances in VR – first with Sheryl Crow at the Old Forester Distillery and later in our studios with St. Paul & the Broken Bones. The videos are available via Endless Riff.

WFPK Mental Health Day

WFPK Mental Health Day

The first WFPK Mental Health Day was held on the 20th anniversary of the beloved “XO” album by Elliott Smith. It was an emotional and uplifting day. Listeners called to share their stories of struggle and the songs that helped them through and requested songs in honor of loved ones. We received enough requests to program the entire day. Experts and advocates joined us live in the studio to talk about how to support friends and family living with mental illness and how to access resources.

Tough and Universal 89.3 WFPL released “Tough and Universal: Stories of Grit

Tough and Universal

89.3 WFPL released “Tough and Universal: Stories of Grit,” a six-part series produced in partnership with IDEAS xLab. Each story is a first-person account of people in the Louisville community who’ve overcome a significant challenge and thrived despite the odds. They’re hopeful stories in a world that’s often full of the opposite.

Louisville Public Media War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds

All three Louisville Public Media stations broadcast a special performance of War of the Worlds exactly 80 years after Orson Welles’ original radio drama adaptation caused panicked listeners to flood emergency call centers. Kentucky Shakespeare performed the play, which was recorded in front of a live audience in our performance studio during the month of October.

The Music Box Chosen for PRX Catapult

The Music Box Chosen for PRX Catapult

90.5 WUOL’s music education podcast, The Music Box, was chosen for Project Catapult, a podcast accelerator from PRX, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The program helped staff from Louisville Public Media re-imagine the second season of the podcast. The Music Box is now more interactive, and it uses National Arts Standards to focus each lesson on musical objectives for the young learner.

Louisville Music Awards

Louisville Music Awards

91.9 WFPK celebrated Louisville’s diverse music community with the Louisville Music Awards. Backed by the Louisville Public Media All-Star Band, the LMAs were an evening of live, never-before-seen music collaborations and special performances highlighting the honorees.

WUOL New Lens

New Lens

90.5 WUOL kicked off New Lens, a series of free concerts and conversations at 21c Museum Hotel exploring diverse and intriguing sounds and ideas in new music, art and society. The inaugural New Lens featured violinist Rob Simonds playing the complete works for solo violin by Missy Mazzoli and pianist Cristina Spinei playing her chamber work “Superstitions” written for Nashville Ballet.

National Shows Come to Louisville

National Shows Come to Louisville

In October, 89.3 WFPL welcomed Snap Judgment LIVE! with Glynn Washington for the show’s first-ever live event in Kentucky at the Brown Theatre. In June, we welcomed Live From Here with Chris Thile to a packed Iroquois Amphitheater. The two-hour performance was broadcast live across the nation on nearly 600 public radio stations.

2019 Investigations

More Investigations

The Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting released several more stories that prompted changes, including: acknowledgement of problems at a bed-bug-infested public housing complex and subsequent improvements; coverage of asset forfeiture that prompted legislation; and increased transparency from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission. We also fought two lawsuits from state agencies attempting to hide public information. We won both cases, and the state was ordered to release the names of employees accused of sexual harassment on the job.

Music Education

Music Education

Last year, we reached more than 15,000 youth in our community through our music education programs. Program Manager Jecorey Arthur engages children with classical music with programs like Music and Movement, Composers Club, Classical Corner and the Young Artist Competition.

Ohio Valley ReSource

Ohio Valley ReSource

The U.S. Department of Justice filed a civil lawsuit against 23 coal companies, seeking more than $4.7 million in unpaid fines and fees for mine safety and health violations. The delinquent fines were brought to light by investigations by NPR and the Ohio Valley ReSource as the Justice companies’ overdue debts ballooned to more than $4 million in 2018. The Ohio Valley ReSource is a regional journalism collaborative led by Louisville Public Media.

Next Louisville: Youth Voices

Next Louisville: Youth Voices

The Next Louisville: Youth Voices project is a collaboration between 89.3 WFPL News and the Community Foundation of Louisville that explores issues of consequence to our city and its future. This year, we began focusing on the city’s youth, working with young people to tell their stories and highlight issues that matter to them. The project has brought young people together for community conversations and a bi-monthly talk show that has helped them tell their own stories.

AWARDS

“I enjoy listening to WFPL, WUOL, and WFPK on my way to and from work each day. I am proud that Louisville has a wide range of independent public radio that offers unbiased local and national news, peaceful classical music, and unique musical artists. Thank you for contributing to our community.”

“As a new resident to Louisville, I can say that local public radio is one of the best ways to ‘tune in’ to a new community to learn what’s new and exciting, what the important local issues are, and how to get involved. Thank you for the excellent programming, commitment to quality journalism, and support of local non-profits.”
