the project

Our Mission: We at Champaign Public Media are committed to producing and presenting trusted, best-in-class content fueled by a distinctly PBS sensibility. We engage our audiences by entertaining, inspiring, educating, and reflecting a diversity of perspectives. We're fundraising to finance operations next year, including office space, office supplies, technology and personnel costs. 

Our Purpose: We enrich lives, engage communities, inspire exploration, and create new documentaries and radio shows that are for the greater good of humanity. 

the steps

Committed to building an innovative, creative, and collaborative culture that enriches, engages, and inspires our audiences 24/7 with streaming jazz radio and digital television offerings from us and and our content partners at FNX/PBS and the WFMT Radio Network. 

why we're doing it

Storytelling Excellence: We strive to be a best-in-class nonprofit media company by setting the highest standards of quality in all that we do. We celebrate differences, embrace inclusivity, and strive for fairness. The stories we tell on the radio and on TV, as well as the people in front of and behind the camera and microphone, reflect the myriad faces and voices of our nation! During the first week of December, we had about 100,000 viewers for our TV content via streaming, large market numbers for a PBS affiliate. 

budget

We produced two award-winning documentaries in the last 18 months, including the Telly Award-winning film, The Frank Capra Story (2019) and the Davey Award-winning On With the Show (2020). Our small nonprofit earned the same Gold Medal for creativity from the Daveys that the cast of Saturday Night Live did, in another category. We also air a 24/7 jazz streaming radio staton and a digital TV affiliate of the FNX/PBS network! To continue the exceptional success as a PBS producer and affiliate digital channel, we need to continue creating new documentaries and other programming, like news, jazz radio notes, and cultural far from our partners at WFMT Radio Network and the FNX/PBS Network! Donations will pay for office space, salary, office expenses, and travel, and salaries. Our work is for the greater good of mankind, creating new documentary films and educating the next generation, through the arts, on culture.
