From our Membership Director
KUOW is a nonprofit newsroom with a singular mission: to create and serve a more informed public. We do that by producing in-depth, timely, and trusted local journalism that has real impact in our community and our democracy.
Recently, I’ve been reflecting on how many different communities we can be transported to in just one hour of public radio programming. Since 1952, KUOW has reported stories from Puget Sound neighborhoods, and shared voices and perspectives from communities around the country and the world. At its core, public media brings us together, and lately, that’s never felt more important. It’s a remarkable system powered by people who believe journalism is crucial to our democracy. Our supporters know that storytelling based in facts and connectedness is the pathway to a better future.
We’re proud of our work and its importance in our community — and thankful to the 52,000 donors that support it. Four times per year, we take a moment to reflect and share the results of our coverage. We hope you’ll take a moment to look through (and listen!) to these remarkable stories, from our neighborhood to yours.
