Impact Statement

 

In its 54rd year, WUSF Public Media serves the local community with free unbiased news, information, all night jazz, 24/7 Classical music on the radio while providing education and entertaining PBS programming on television. WUSF is proud to continue its vital partnerships with the community including the support of local arts organizations. Following are a few of our favorite accomplishments.

-- WUSF 89.7 News brings the community award winning news year after year. In 2016, WUSF won 4 Society of Professional Journalists’ ‘Green Eyeshade’ awards in a contest that puts the newsroom’s work up against radio broadcasters in 11 southern states. In November 2014, WUSF News Director Mary Shedden’s personal interview with President Barrack Obama about prescription drug development and cost was carried on NPR stations across the US. Also in 2015, WUSF won two Region 13 Murrow Awards for Large Market Radio Feature Reporting and Large Market Radio Writing, the Sunshine State Awards named Carson Cooper First Place Anchor of the Year and also won 5 Green Eyeshade Awards. For coverage in 2014, WUSF News won 7 Florida Associated Press Broadcasting Awards.

-- WUSF continues June LeBell's Musical Conversations, on Classical WSMR 89.1 & 103.9, featuring fascinating conversations with great artists in the world of classical music. The program takes listeners into June’s radio living room for unscripted, insightful, fun conversation about and with music throughout the hour. The guest list is a name-droppers dream!

--WUSF provided over 40 Live Performance Broadcasts on Classical WSMR 89.1 & 103.9 throughout the year. These presentations help to promote the vast talent being brought to the community by local arts organizations in Sarasota and Tampa.

-- WUSF produced and premiered Florida Wildlife Corridor's documentary film, "The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida." Following in the footsteps of a wandering Florida black bear, three friends leave civilization and become immersed in a vast and unexplored wildlife corridor stretching from the Everglades to the Florida-Alabama border. The rugged thousand-mile journey by foot, paddle, and bike traverses Florida’s Forgotten Coast – a wilderness that has the potential to change the way we see the natural world. WUSF currently is developing curriculum about the film for Florida’s K-12 classrooms through PBS LearningMedia’s online resources.

-- WUSF continued its strong support of Veterans by working with key partner organizations to recognize veterans’ service and share their stories, opportunities and challenges through national and local content as well as to increase the number of veterans connecting with local resources to support their successful transition to civilian life. In November 2014, WUSF collaborated with the Patterson Foundation as a part of the Veterans Legacy Summit.

Description

WUSF TV is the only local television station providing commercial-free, 24/7 PBS educational programs on its WUSF KIDS channel. PBS provides content that expands the minds of children, programs that ensure the worlds of music, theater, dance and art remain available to all Americans.

WUSF, along with other PBS stations in Florida, has launched an initiative to bring PBS LearningMedia resources to Florida students and teachers. Projects include:

Short Term Success Children are given opportunities and resources to improve reading skills and comprehension. Once an individual can read, the whole world opens up to them. By making reading fun, children are motivated to continue learning, exploring and advancing their education. PBS has been rated as the most trustworthy institution among nationally known organizations for 12 consecutive years. Over the course of a year, 86% of all U.S. television households - and 211 million people - watch PBS. The demographic breakdown of PBS' full-day audience reflects the overall U.S. population with respect to race/ethnicity, education and income. (Nielsen NPower, 9/23/2013-9/21/2014)
Long Term Success

Helping to Close the Achievement Gap

  • PBS is the No. 1 source of media content for preschool teachers. (Grunwald Study, 2009 Media and Technology Use and Trends Among K-12 & Pre-K Teachers)
  • PBS LearningMedia, a partnership of PBS and WGBH Educational Foundation, is a free media-on-demand service offering educators access to the best of public media and delivers research-based, classroom-ready digital learning experiences to engage students in exploring curriculum concepts that align with National and Common Core State Standards.
    • Teachers have access to more than 87,000 curriculum-aligned digital resources from over 200 trusted media partners bringing learning to life for students.
    • Over 1.5 million educators have registered access to PBS LearningMedia.
  • PBS offers more than 50 interactive whiteboard games for educators to use in the classroom.
  • PBS Parents (pbsparents.org) provides the tools and resources for parents to be their children’s best first teacher.
Program Success Monitoring According to Nielsen, PBS stations reach more kids aged 2-5, more moms with children under 6 years old and more low-income children than any other kids TV network. Last season we were watched by 80% of all children ages 2-5, on television alone. As of June 2015, viewership among this age group increased 16% year over year. PBS KIDS is also the leader in streaming video, with pbskids.org placing first in the kids’ category for total video views and minutes spent.
Program Success Examples
PBS KIDS series received 10 Daytime Emmy Awards in 2014, and in spring 2015 earned a combined 10 Parents' Choice Awards across television, mobile app and website categories. PBS KIDS also received six Kidscreen Awards, including being named Best Channel Website and Best Channel Design, and PBSKIDS.org was also honored with a People's Voice Webby Award. 
 
Parents are asking for more because they have seen their children's reading improve.  Lydia of Sarasota says, "I trust WUSF and love that I don't have to be present all of the time while my kids are watching. It gives me peace of mind to know they are learning and can apply the information to the milestones they are going through. I don't know where I would be without WUSF Kids."

Long Term Success

For over half a century, WUSF 89.7 has been enhancing the intellectual lives of countless listeners throughout the Tampa Bay region. Through a combination of local, national and international news, insightful educational programs and world-class jazz, WUSF has become an integral part of daily life. Our people and programs, our ideas, our research and our solutions comprise an ambitious plan to enhance health care, science, technology, education, business, the arts and global partnerships.

Program Success Monitoring

The largest monitor of success for WUSF 89.7 is audience feedback. As a listener-supported radio station, financial contributions are easily measured and increase year to year. We also encourage comments and suggestions as the community is our priority. WUSF's radio audience is measured by Nielsen, a leading research company and is the 2nd most listened to radio station in the area.

Program Success Examples Testimonial from listener Marianne T., "I stay informed of world events with the news and Morning Edition, and then get to laugh about it all with Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!  I learn about new science discoveries with Science Fridays; get to hear different perspective and life stories, many of which are inspiring and help to balance out all that sometimes depressing world news!  I also love to catch the People's Pharmacy on Saturday mornings, and being exposed to new and different music that I would never hear on any other local radio station.  In short, WUSF helps me be a well-rounded, informed individual."
Description

Short Term Success

It is essential for children to be introduced to classical music since it’s highly beneficial for their development.

Many studies reveal benefits of listening to classical music are to lower blood pressure, relieve stress levels, help fight depression and manage pain, improve sleep quality, and enhance mental alertness and memory, along with many others.
Long Term Success

Classical WSMR 89.1 ensures the preservation of classical music. Classical music, made up of songs composed hundreds of years ago, continues to serve as a historical record for the life and times of days past, a backdrop for all our favorite contemporary forms of entertainment and a trainer for our developing brains. The high riffs of the violins, the low rumble of the basses and percussion, the shout of the brass section and the call of the choir touch and tug at the heart strings of audiences now just as they did hundreds of years ago.

 

Program Success Monitoring With every donation, we ask for feedback from our listeners; the majority are positive.  The only negative feedback is from those not able to clearly receive our signal.  It is vital that we raise the funds to expand our signal to create a larger base of support for our classical station.
Program Success Examples Classical WSMR 89.1 is a listener supported public radio station. We constantly received feedback from our audience. A listener in Port Charlotte writes, “I love WSMR, and can't imagine a day without it. The programming is so much better than any I had in CT. For this reason I am happy that I moved to Florida, that and no snow.” Another supporter from Sarasota says, “I I listen to and love Classical WSMR. If classical music is to survive it must be accessible to all, not just to those who can afford symphony concert tickets. WSMR brings the beauty and wonder of classical music to everyone in west central and southwest central Florida. It's a true treasure.”
