NPR 89.1 Voted Best Radio Station for News

For the 12th year in a row NPR 89.1 has been voted Best Radio Station for News in the Tucson Weekly Best of Tucson Readers’ Poll.

The Power of Public Broadcasting

Local News. Community Specials. Safety. Culture. Science. Entertainment. Classroom Resources. All for less than $1 a month: That’s the power of public broadcasting

Why does AZPM need your support?

Budget Realities

AZPM’s funding from the UA was reduced by $2 million, with the cut being phased in over five-years. The first $400,000 cut is taking place this year. In Year 2, the reduction will double to $800,000…and so on until Year 5, when the full $2 million cut is in effect.

The UA continues to provide significant in-kind support to AZPM, but for an organization with an operating budget of about $12 million, this cut is large. AZPM is working diligently to minimize the impact of the reduction while providing the same level of service to the community.

The Public’s Role in Public Radio

Public radio and television remain an unbiased, informative tool for the general public, providing news and other quality programming for people of all ages, free from commercial influences. To remain independent and unbiased, public broadcasting must be funded by the public. That is possible only through the active participation and support of individuals. It’s true that when one person gives, we all gain.

How you can help

Help us get to 2 in 10

Roughly one in 10 viewers/listeners of AZPM is a contributor. While this is a very good percentage, if AZPM can get to 2 in 10 viewers/listeners to become sustaining members over the next four years, we could close the entire $2 million budget reduction!

Become a sustaining member!

Sustaining memberships enable AZPM to better project future revenue, which helps us better and operate more efficiently. Sustaining memberships also easier for you. You contribute a small amount monthly, rather than a single, larger one-time donation.

Tell your friends

We want to reach people we may have missed in the past! If you winter in Tucson, you may not have participated in our previous membership campaigns. If you’re one of the folks we missed, we hope you choose to contribute today. And encourage your friends and neighbors to participate as well.
