Trusted Journalism Matters

Mar 4, 2017

This is the Manager’s Minute.

KGOU, Your NPR Source.

If you’re an avid listener, you’ve heard us say that many times.

But, it’s more than a slogan. It signals our commitment to trusted news and information, and the “Dialogue of Democracy.”

That’s what public service media is all about.

The ratings, across the nation, prove the value of NPR.

In 2016, ratings for the flagship programs, Morning Edition and All Things Considered, increased 25 to 43 percent in the 25 to 54 year old age group.

More than 36 million listeners tune in to NPR stations each week and more than 30 million unique visitors access each month.

Also, NPR is the nation’s leading publisher of podcasts.

People want solid journalism, and NPR delivers.

That’s why we’re proud to say: KGOU, Your NPR Source.

Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
