Impact Statement

Per the Long Range Plan developed by the WMNF Board of Directors and Staff, we accomplished the following:

· Building and maintaining a new wmnf.org Website which engages each of our constituencies by communicating information to the public and to the WMNF community.

· Expanded digital infrastructure by creating a new Smartphone app and implementing standards and policies for its maintenance.

· Built and expanded audience. New ratings numbers show increased listening between Fall 2015 and Spring 2016.

Some Key Goals for 2017-­18

· Further grow local/regional audience ratings.

· Increase listener contributions through higher ratings.

· Diversify funding structure to incorporate deeper relationships with mission-aligned Community Partners through event and on­-air program sponsorship. WMNF still intends to remain 70% listener supported, while including Community Partners as part of a sustainable "member" base. However, to remain largely listener supported, WMNF needs to grow its individual contributions, particularly in areas such as Sarasota County.

Needs Statement
  1. New radio broadcast boards-ours have outlived their ten-year life expectancy. Replacement cost for five boards-$150,000
  2. Challenge gifts to inspire others to contribute to WMNF during our membership drives, from which 70% of our operating budget is raised. These gifts range from $5,000-$20,000.
  3. Ten new CD players for our broadcast and production facilities: $400 each or $4,000.
  4. Improved Customer Relationship Management (donor) software: $10,000.

 

Background Statement
Nearly 38 years ago, a new radio station was born unlike any other in the Tampa Bay area: one committed to promoting our community’s values and celebrating the diverse culture of west-central Florida.
It took several years and the remarkable energy and vision of about a dozen committed volunteers to make this happen. They went door-to-door in to raise money, rebuilt electronics out of cast-offs from commercial stations across the country – even from as far away as California – solicited donations of equipment, and more, and reconfigured a second floor in a dilapidated Hyde Park mansion into a viable radio station. And then the experiment became reality.
 
With 7,000 watts transmitting non-commercial,  public affairs programming and a mix of music that honors our diverse cultural heritages – Gospel and Bluegrass, 60s and new alternative rock, folk and acoustic, jazz and Latin – a new community of radio-activists was born.
We expanded over the next several years from the first dozen original volunteers to nearly 8,000 donors and nearly 80,000 listeners.
 
From three concerts in 1978 to over 50 special interest and public affairs events each year, we have introduced Tampa Bay to such Grammy Award winning artists as the Blind Boys of Alabama, Los Lonelyboys, Pinetop Perkins, The Hold Steady, and Trombone Shorty, among many others.
From our first studio – the sleeping porch of a 70 year old house – and first record library – the tub in its bathroom – WMNF has grown to a 12,000 square foot state-of-the-art radio facility at 1210 E Martin Luther King Boulevard with three broadcast studios, two production studios, a live music studio, a 1,000 foot record library and meeting spaces which we designed, built and moved into in February 2005. In true WMNF fashion, the building was paid for by our listeners.
 
Unlike many public radio stations, WMNF produces 90% of our programming in-house. And while we are proud to carry syndicated NPR and Pacifica programming including Fresh Air with Terry Gross, NPR News, Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman, and the Hightower Report, we believe that local audiences are best served by locally-produced programs and that our news staff and volunteer music programmers bring an enthusiasm and devotion that is unsurpassed.
 
Over 37 years, WMNF has grown and evolved just as our community has and we are excited to see how we will contribute to the Tampa Bay area when we celebrate 38 years in September and into the future.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

Michael Bagby­, President, Board of Directors, Nathan B. Stubblefield Foundation, Inc.: 

As the President of the Nathan B. Stubblefield Board of Directors, I make it a point in preparing new incoming board members that we are a radio station first and foremost broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. In order to accomplish this daily monumental task, WMNF has well over 100 different volunteer DJ programmers with almost as many different shows, thousands of volunteers throughout any given year, and a professional staff who regularly go well beyond their required work hours to make this Community Conscious Radio happen.
In addition to our powerful broadcast signal and internet streams, WMNF hosts multiple concerts/festivals, special speakers, fund raisers, and celebrations. We are also one of the few local radio stations with an active news team. Our General Manager, Craig Kopp, has extensive broadcast news experience as well as a resevoir of knowledge concerning traditional and new media.
We are soon entering a new phase in connecting to our audience by becoming part of VuHaus. VuHaus focuses on new and emerging artists by providing access to videos and live stream rare in-studio performances and concerts, all curated by public and community radio stations. This will enable people to see WMNF created videos from our Live Studio and our sponsered live shows.
We continue improving and updating WMNF's long range plan of growing our organization through outreach, new technologies, and renewed effort in making meaningful partnerships throughout the Tampa Bay area. One challenge we have is creating new income streams through underwriting, grants, and partnerships. Recently we received a major grant from Hillsborough County allowing our onsite microwave tower to be replaced at a much higher altitude greatly improving our signal to our broadcast tower.
As we move forward, attracting a younger audience remains one of our chief goals, as well as increasing our diversity of volunteers, staff, and programming options. Check out our daily radio broadcast and streaming lineup on our website. Our diversity of programming is rich and complex. There is no other station our size in the country that continues embracing volunteer the programmer community radio model. This model connects WMNF to our listeners as an integral part of the Tampa Bay community and beyond since 1979.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Craig Kopp, General Manager, WMNF 88.5 FM:
 
WMNF is unique not just to the Sarasota/Tampa/St. Petersburg area, but is also unique to the United States. Most community radio stations transmit on a low¬power FM transmitter and are available to listeners within a few miles of the transmitter. WMNF transmits at 7,000 watts and is available throughout all of the Sarasota/Tampa/St.Petersburg/Clearwater community.


And, WMNF’s on-¬air staff is comprised almost entirely of volunteer programmers. These are, literally, your neighbors taking the airwaves in succession every two to three hours, playing music and talking about the news of the day.
This is community radio on a large scale. And it all began in 1979 when an intrepid little group learned that broadcasting licenses were available to real people, not just big companies. They went door-to-door asking people if they’d like to hear radio created by people just like themselves and, if they did, would they be willing to contribute to the effort. They were, and those contributions helped give birth to WMNF.
A used transmitter was hoisted by a rope lashed to someone’s car bumper to a rented space on a broadcast tower and WMNF was on the air.
Since then, WMNF has provided space for everything from a polka show to a Jewish show to an Islamic show, trying to live up to its mission of giving voice to the voiceless.
Today, WMNF broadcasts a cutting edge mix of Adult Album Alternative (AAA) music during the weekdays, with a five hour break for, mostly, local original news and public affairs programming in middays. In the evenings, overnights and weekends WMNF has a dizzying array of music programming covering all genres.
Seventy per cent of WMNF’s operating budget comes from listener donations. The rest comes from the state and federal governments, generous community partners who purchase underwriting on our programs, and sponsors who underwrite the cost of events.
WMNF presents over 50 community events a year with many of these concerts featuring a diverse selection of musicians and musical tastes.
All of this activity keeps WMNF aligned with its mission to promote creative, musical, and political vitality in the community.

Short Term Success
WMNF has  an immediate plan to grow the audience and maintain programming that reflects the demographics of our community. Other goals and objectives include growing and diversifying our revenue base; expanding community engagement; increasing and deepening community partnerships; providing opportunities for volunteers and staff training; and improving the tools for identifying community-based issues that can be translated into quality programming. WMNF works with the station’s Diversity Committee to identify events and communities that fit our mission. WMNF has and responds to more than 400 monthly volunteers, representing all demographics of our community, who bring their interests and concerns to the station. 
WMNF engages the community through multiple channels. For example, The Soul Party, one of our longstanding programs, visits incarcerated populations six times a year. These actions connect WMNF in a very legitimate way with minority and youth communities.
Long Term Success
WMNF's long-term goals include conversations with groups in differing communities by both participating in events and by inviting the communities into the station; facilitating communication between on-air volunteers and community groups; and creating opportunities for members of different communities to come together to brainstorm on local issues and building coalitions. WMNF initiated "reach-out" opportunities. We have gone as a group to help other non-profits with their events, working with Tampa Bay Watch to clean up state parks; The Diversity Initiative, a local nonprofit that finds employment for disabled citizens; organic community gardens and more. This allows individuals who are committed to WMNF to propose non-profit events which we can help, and those non-profits then promote WMNF to their members and groups.
Program Success Monitoring WMNF ratings show more listeners are tuning in to the station to receive program that enriches informs, entertains and inspires. We use the Radio Research Consortium to drill down into our numbers. As well, WMNF tracks monthly underwriting revenues and weekly membership contributions. Such contributions have held steady since the economic recovery. 
Program Success Examples WMNF had seen declining ratings in 2014-15.  However, due to a new Web site, Smartphone App, a month-long Tampa Bay area-wide billboard campaign and more advertising, the station has seen its ratings increase to a 1% share of the market. Community Partners are also testifying to WMNF's success as a station that helps with their sales and marketing. WMNF is increasingly relying on underwriting messages (non-commercial advertising.) For example, Goodwill Industries-Suncoast says " WMNF provides great music and other programming without commercial interruptions, and that service is supported by contributions and programmers who volunteer their time. With underwriting messages on WMNF, we know we’re reaching an audience that cares about people and about the local community. I can’t think of a more appropriate vehicle for sharing our messages." 
Description

Produced weekdays from 11am-noon, RadioActivity, hosted by News & Public Affairs Director Rob Lorei, engages and invites listener participation in interviews and discussion on a wide range of topics of international, national, state and local interest. Conversational and non-confrontational, the open dialogue sets the show apart from standard talk-show call-in formats. RadioActivity also includes on Mondays at 10am Sustainable Living on alternating weeks and focuses on ecological landscaping, home improvement and related issues, targeted to Floridians and co-hosted by volunteers. Alternative Health airs the other Mondays during RadioActivity, and focuses on holistic healing and wellness. Alternative Health is also a call-in show where listeners can get an alternative viewpoint through dialog with the volunteer co-host.

Budget $15,000
Category Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy, General/Other Civil Liberties

Population Served Adults Minorities Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Short Term Success RadioActivity provides an open forum for community discussion of local, state, national and international topics that impact each listener. This interactive program allows voices normally shut out of the mainstream to be heard on a daily basis. 
Long Term Success Program long-term success will be gauged by both ratings and fundraising outcomes. 
Program Success Monitoring WMNF conducts polls through Survey Monkey; utilizes the Radio Research Consortium and holds three annual membership drives. RadioActivity is consistently given some of the highest fundraising goals to reach and most challenge grants by members of the community. 
Program Success Examples RadioActivity is a cornerstone program of WMNF produced by station founder and News & Public Affairs Director Rob Lorei. It has been supported both in fundraising and ratings by this community for more than three decades. 
Description The Soul Party, Fridays 8-10pm, is a weekly two-hour program. On its face, The Soul Party is a classic R&B and smooth soul show. But it also initiates extensive outreach projects at prisons and receives a large volume of mail from incarcerated citizens and is one of our direct links to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay.
Budget $19,000
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Cultural & Ethnic Awareness
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served At-Risk Populations Offenders/Ex-Offenders Adults
Short Term Success The Soul Party is a successful fundraising show and does well in both ratings and WMNF's own polling. 
Long Term Success

The work The Soul Party does  through the show also brings in more letters from incarcerated citizens than any other on WMNF. Outreach to correctional facilities means a lot to this historically marginalized segment of our community, many of whom may have been abandoned by family and friends. 

Program Success Monitoring WMNF, as it does with all programs, relies on ratings, our own surveys and fundraising success. 
Program Success Examples Inmates tell Soul Party volunteers they might be forgotten were it not for their visits. Their inspirational speeches are intended not only for the inmates, but also for the prison staff to foster further understanding of how incarcerated citizens can redeem themselves for past crimes. They also vet the inmates they speak to in advance so that no sex-offenders or those who have committed crimes against children are included in the audience. They focus on those who can be given a second chance or rehabilitated. These volunteers say the men they visit often cry because someone cares enough to reach out.
Description

Talking Animals, Wednesday 10am – Host and renowned animal activist Duncan Strauss has produced Talking Animals for more than eleven years, first in California and then bringing the program to WMNF. The program contains celebrity and local activist interviews about animals and animal issues, and incorporates animal-related songs, comedy, news, and an interactive "Name That Animal Tune" quiz. 

Budget $12,000
Category Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Protection & Welfare
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults Families Other Named Groups
Short Term Success Talking Animals continues to engage internationally-known animal activists through in-depth interviews and empowers small local animal welfare agencies by being guests on the show or having their special events publicized.
Long Term Success WMNF will evaluate the program through ratings and fundraising success, as well as audience polling. 
Program Success Monitoring Talking Animals raises more funds in one hour than any other show on WMNF. This is because of its strong support in the animal welfare community, from pet-owners and also numerous and frequent celebrity interviews.
Program Success Examples Talking Animals excels in its high-profile interviews. Noted guests include Jane Goodall, Alec Baldwin, John Doe of X, Joan Jett, Lily Tomlin, Bronwen Dickey, author of "Pit Bull: The Battle Over an American Icon(featured on NPR's Fresh Air the Same week) and numerous others. 
Description

Art in Your Ear, Friday 1pm - A cornerstone program of WMNF for more than two decades, Art in Your Ear is a is a broad-brushed survey of the local arts scene hosted by former journalist JoEllen Schilke who interviews artists ranging from visual to performing. The program also includes a calendar of arts events listeners rely upon to keep up with the Tampa Bay Area’s burgeoning art scene as well as in-studio performances.

Budget $6,000

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults General/Unspecified
Short Term Success This program enriches the Tampa Bay Area's cultural scene by its broad survey and showcase of the arts: visual, performing, spoken word, theatrical and more. It also serves as an arts events calendar so listeners will know who, what, where, when and why events are taking place. 
Long Term Success WMNF will monitor the program's fundraising and ratings numbers as well as survey listeners. 
Program Success Monitoring The program's success will be monitored by the number of artists in the program, community partnerships built and maintained. Much of WMNF's outreach comes through Art in Your Ear. The MIRA program described above-which came about as a result of relations with Art in Your Ear- will be measured and monitored as well. 
Program Success Examples
WMNF has continued our three-year collaboration with St. Petersburg College’s MIRA (Music Industry Recording Arts) program.
WMNF offers internships to MIRA students in our studios, with hands on experience running the boards, learning operational tasks and equipment; editing software; video cameras and software; social media, booking talent and more. WMNF also collaborated with SPC/MIRA on having their students participate in our Tropical Heatwave Festival, working with both the sound engineers and band management.
In addition, WMNF and St. Petersburg College presented a seminar, The Working Artist. The seminar was attended by more than 130 students and an additional 140+ local residents. It focused on opportunities in arts and music related industries on the West Central coast of Florida.
Here is some feedback received from students who attended the Working Artist event:
“Very Cool! Great concept; community at its best.”
“The arts are broader than I realize. I realized I need a mentor for the next stage in my career”
“Really enjoyed the whole evening. Appreciated the panelists and LOVED the networking”
“Met so many incredible artists, but would like to have a master contact sheet so ‘collaboration’ could happen. This event proves that local artists are valid, but don’t know each exist”
WMNF has worked with SPC/MIRA on their student-run radio station. There are plans to expand The Working Artist seminar again, and we are collaborating on speed networking events throughout the year on campus. Students from SPC also served as WMNF’s ‘street team’ at local music festivals.
Description The Live Music Showcase is one of our most mission-driven music programs. Each Friday from 2-3pm, WMNF presents the best in live, local or national touring acts. WMNF has featured everyone from local independent groups to national acts like Alejandro Escovedo and They Might Be Giants.

Short Term Success Musicians, one of the lowest-paid and best loved members of society, are given a chance to "showcase" their talents to an audience who will in turn support them financially through recording sales and concert/event attendance. 
Long Term Success The short and long-term successes are much the same. The long-term will be determined on the program's continued viability and ability to attract musicians and audience. 
Program Success Monitoring WMNF will monitor the program through ratings, fundraising success, further ventures into digital and other platforms, and station surveys. 
Program Success Examples Past performances of the Live Music Showcase air on The Tampa Bay Arts and Education Network. The program has also featured both international and local touring artist as well.
