Do you depend on KLRU for news and information?

Posted on Mar 1, 2019

It's March already, and spring is just around the corner, but you wouldn't know it with highs around 40°! A silver lining to this chilly weather is that it's a nice excuse to curl up in front of the TV with KLRU.

But maybe you don't need the excuse of a windchill to tune in? I know a lot of people in the community, myself included, have a daily routine that includes watching KLRU programming. Sunday night is for Masterpiece lovers, Wednesday is when the Nature folks drop in, but our PBS NewsHour fans...they rely on KLRU every day. Central Texans, Americans and people around the world turn on NewsHour for the latest domestic and international news, helmed by award-winning journalists who take the time to thoroughly investigate and report the issues that affect us all.

In a nationwide survey, PBS and its member stations were ranked the most trusted media source for a 16th consecutive year, and it's dedicated viewers like YOU that have made such a stunning streak possible.

If you believe the longform journalism from programs like NewsHour, Washington Week, Frontline and local production Decibel is worth protecting...if you think all Central Texans should have access to this high quality source of information...then please be an advocate for KLRU during our spring drive. Local fundraising is what keeps this station running. We don't answer to advertisers, which means we don't have to flash provacative headlines or sensationalize the news. News on KLRU is thoughtful, fact-based and locally supported.

KLRU strives to be a welcoming place to all our neighbors. From our peer-reviewed PBS KIDS programming to our classic Masterpiece dramas, there's something for everyone. Shows produced right here in our Austin studio, like Arts In Context and Central Texas Gardener, help us all connect to this special place we call home. KLRU is a public square where all are welcome. If our mission to educate, inspire and entertain resonates with you, then now is a wonderful time to give. Thank you so much for all that you do for your only community-supported public television station.

With gratitude,
